(KSFR) -

Former Gov. Gary Johnson has been nominated as the Libertarian Party presidential candidate, but it remains to be seen whether he will be on stage when the presidential debates are televised this fall.

Santa Fe-based Think New Mexico says the state's insurance division isn't applying the rules for homeowner title insurance that the legislature required some three years ago.

The think tank says an average homeowner could save hundreds of dollars on title insurance costs if the rules are put in place.

The provost of the University of New Mexico tells the Albuquerque Journal that the school is in danger of losing top faculty members because of low salaries. The current salary plan ranks UNM midway on a list of nearly 500 four-year schools. Full professors make about $103,000 on average. That's about $13,000 less than at the University of Arizona and $17,000 less than Texas A&M. The provost says it would take an extra $8 million in the UNM budget to bring it in line with its peers.
