HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - The relocation of Sci-Quest is raising question over funding.

The city of Huntsville helps fund about 45 outside agencies, but support for Sci-Quest could soon be cut.

Mayor Tommy Battle said most outside groups have vital parts within Huntsville. Since Sci-Quest is moving to Madison, that could change things.

"We'll be looking at it and see," said Battle. "Sci-Quest is now located in Madison and Madison has promised to help out Sci-Quest; we've got six other museums which we support with tax dollars so we're just going to have to wait it out."

Mayor Battle said a decision on funding Sci-Quest could come sometime in September.
