MONTGOMERY, AL (WAFF) -

Alabama's new fiscal year begins on October 1, and Chief Justice Roy Moore said that without more funding, layoffs may be coming in the future.

Moore said that without an extra $8.5 million, the State Judiciary will need to lay off 150 workers. The budget was written so that Governor Robert Bentley would release the extra money if tax collections exceed expectations. However, it does not appear that will happen.
