New fiscal year underway

The new fiscal year began Thursday, for the state's education and general fund budgets.  Both of those budgets are being cut.  The Governor cut 7.5% to the education budget. 

For Montgomery that is a $11.2 million cut, $3.8 million for Autauga County and $3 million less for Elmore County.

The state's 7.5% cut means this year's budget is $5.3 billion dollars, down $1.4 billion less than 2008.
