ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico’s state government is putting more cash on the line to promote economic development.

The State Investment Council on Tuesday approved providing an additional $40 million for venture capital investments in local companies.

The Albuquerque Journal (https://bit.ly/1o3Zhwk ) reports that the money will be invested in startups in health care, energy and other fields in the next three years.

The allocation increases the state Co-Investment Fund to $150 million from $10 million.

The money comes from the state’s severance tax permanent fund.
