Attorney General's Office may not receive state funding for 2013

MONTGOMERY, AL (WAFF) -

An Alabama Legislative committee passed a plan for the 2013 budget last week. This plan does not include an allotted budget for the Attorney General's Office.

Senator Orr said the Attorney General's Office will receive a $26 million settlement from a national mortgage fraud case.

The current plan is for this money to serve as the Attorney General's Office funding for 2013 and the state would not give them any money at all. However, there are still a few snags in the plan.

It is uncertain when the Attorney General's Office will see any payout from the settlement.

Senator Orr said there will be some changes to the plan to accommodate the settlement's pay out.

"On Tuesday, what you'll see is the House Budget Chair will change that A.G. appropriation and put in an amount that is agreeable to Attorney General Luther Strange," said Senator Orr.

If these changes to the budget plan pass, the Attorney General's Office will be supplied with enough funds to keep operating, if money from the settlement is not received before fall of 2012.
