It comes to light that 1,300 Texas residents who reside within 135 miles of New Mexico State University, which is in Las Cruces 46 miles from El Paso, may attend NMSU and have their non-resident tuition waived — a savings of about $4,000. According to a report by the Legislative Finance Committee, New Mexico is subsidizing Texas students in an amount almost equal to what it provides in financial aid to New Mexico’s own neediest students.
