Tax numbers to give idea of proration cuts

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - State educators are waiting on January's tax numbers to see if our school systems will face proration.

State Superintendent Joe Morton says those numbers are due this time next week. Once the governor has the tax information, he will have a clearer picture about potential cuts.

Superintendent Morton says he has already told all school systems to brace for proration cuts.

Governor Bentley's office says an announcement could come in a few weeks.
