New Mexico's Constitutional Amendment 8 is a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment that proposes to amend Section 14 of Article 9 (the "anti-donation clause") to change the requirements for eligibility for the Vietnam veterans' scholarship program that is currently authorized by this section. Under the current provision, one of the requirements of eligibility is that a veteran must have been a resident of New Mexico at the original time of entry into the armed forces. The amendment would alter this residency requirement to also include veterans who have lived in New Mexico for 10 years or more.


The measure passed with yes votes of 70.0% in 2002.
