State employees losing their jobs in latest round of budget cuts

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX – The State of Arizona is announcing a fresh wave of layoffs on Tuesday.

Hundreds of workers from the Juvenile Department of Corrections and dozens from the Department of Water Resources will lose their jobs.

The Juvenile Department of Corrections has about half the number of beds they did back in July of 2008 and a spokesman worries inmates may have to be released before their time.
