New Mexico veto kills tribal projects, saves others
A veto by New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D) killed some tribal projects but saved others.

Richardson spared eight Navajo Nation projects for a total of $536,000. But the tribe lost funding for other initiatives, as did Cochiti Pueblo for a water system and Ohkay Owingeh for an airport project.

Richardson vetoed more than $94 million in projects in response to a budget shortfall.
