AUSTIN -- Budget recommendations being prepared for Texas lawmakers are expected to call for eliminating at least 8,000 state jobs, officials said Thursday.

The base budgets, House Bill 1 and Senate Bill 1, will serve as the starting point for shaping spending for fiscal 2012-13 in the face of a multibillion-dollar shortfall. Although Pitts didn't reveal a number, an official for an association that represents state employees said he has been told that proposed job reductions in the House bill could exceed 9,000.

The numbers are not certain yet, and Im not sure what jobs will be cut. Ill try and look around and see if theres more information on what job areas are going to be cut.

This is still pretty new so im guessing there will problably be more stuff that will be included in the bill when its finalized.
