SOUTH CAROLINA —

South Carolina lawmakers said there might not be enough money for county prosecutors to handle DUI cases next year.

That would mean state troopers would have to start handling their own drunken driving cases.

Prosecutors have asked for more than $1 million to keep that from happening after grant money runs out in the middle of 2013.

It is part of Gov. Nikki Haley's new budget plan, but lawmakers said they may not have the funds to follow through.
