SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Gov. Susana Martinez has signed a measure into law to provide more than $5 million for costs of the 30-day legislative session.

The legislation, which is known by lawmakers as the “feed bill,” was signed on Monday.

The measure also provides $16 million for the Legislature’s year-round operations.

The governor used her line-item veto powers to eliminate a provision that would have provided flexibility to the Legislative Council Service and others, such as the Legislative Finance Committee, to make adjustments within their budgets next year.

Lawmakers can still provide that budget transfer authority as a provision in the state’s main budget when it’s considered later in the session.
