HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut’s judicial branch is issuing additional layoff notices to state employees.

Officials announced Thursday they began delivering pink slips to 113 workers. Some of those notices won’t go out until next week.

The second round of layoffs brings to the number of judicial workers losing their jobs to 239.

Officials said the total number will be determined once the General Assembly adopts a new budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1.

Lawmakers plan to hold a special legislative session, likely next week, to vote on a $19.7 billion budget deal brokered between Democratic leaders and Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to address the state’s projected $960 million deficit.

The notices issued Thursday affect jobs ranging from adult and juvenile probation officers to caseflow coordinators and family relations counselors.
