PORTALES, N.M. (AP) - Eastern New Mexico University satellite presidents say they expect higher education funding cuts amid a state budget shortfall.

The Portales News Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/FolBps) that all three campus presidents told ENMU board members last week that they are already making cutbacks in anticipation of state funds decreasing.

ENMU-Ruidoso President Clayton Alred says the Ruidoso campus will likely experience a $100,000 shortfall this fiscal year due to the state budget cuts. He says faculty member retired last year, and the campus will not re-hire for that position right away as a means to combat the shortfall.

ENMU-Roswell President John Madden says the Roswell campus has deactivated some programs and has improved electronic systems in anticipation of cuts.
