TRAVIS COUNTY -- Tuesday afternoon Travis County Commissioners voted to let employees with the District Attorney's Public Integrity Unit know their jobs are on the line.
More than 30 employees' jobs are in jeopardy. The commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to let the PIU employees know their jobs may no longer be funded on September 30.
County Judge Sam Biscoe says the commission will vote next Tuesday, July 9, to decide whether the county will cover the cost to fund the PIU.
Governor Rick Perry cut $7.5 million in state funding after he threatened Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her DWI arrest. Lehmberg refused, calling on commissioners and taxpayers to fill in the funding gap.
