Text of measure
The ballot language that New Mexico voters saw on the ballot read as follows:
The 2010 Capital Projects General Obligation Bond Act authorizes the issuance and sale of library acquisition and construction bonds. Shall the state be authorized to issue general obligation bonds in an amount not to exceed seven million eighty-two thousand one hundred ten dollars ($7,082,110) to make capital expenditures for academic, public school, tribal and public library acquisitions and provide for a general property tax imposition and levy for the payment of principal of, interest on and expenses incurred in connection with the issuance of the bonds and the collection of the tax as permitted by law?
- Dr. Cheri Jimeno, president of New Mexico State University-Alamogordo, supported Bond Question B due to the positive impacts that the measure would bring to higher education programs, according to him. Jimeno stated, "Bond B supports libraries throughout the state. For example, if bond B passes, the NMSU-A library will receive more than $35,000, and the Alamogordo Public Schools will receive more than $38,000. In fact, if GO bond B receives voter approval, the libraries in Otero County will receive more than $212,000."
- San Juan College library director Chris Schipper stated about the importance of the measure, "It's completely essential, we really live or die by it. If the bond doesn't pass this time, this library would be faced with having to cut some of our subscriptions to our print resources. There would be some really unpleasant and tough decisions that we would have to make."
There was no known opposing campaign for Bond Question B.
