New Mexico’s children deserve a future as bright as they are, and champions committed to delivering exactly that. I am enormously proud to have led the federal effort to unlock early childhood investments from New Mexico’s Land Grant Permanent Fund, securing the required Congressional authorization in 2023.

Through my legislation and my seat on the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue working to invest in our public schools, public school teachers and support staff, apprenticeships and career pathways for students, college completion supports, and our child care infrastructure. That includes investing in community schools and the wraparound services they provide working families, fighting to increase the literacy resources available to our kids, and making sure New Mexicans have pathways to careers in health care, technology, and the trades that they can build their families around, in their home communities.
