Boeing says it will lay off 130 workers in Sept.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Boeing in Huntsville has announced it will lay off up to 130 employees in September. Those who are being let go were to be told on Friday.

The layoffs will be in Boeing's Ground-Based Mid-course Defense program, formerly known as National Missle Defense.

This is the direct result of funding reductions that may be made to missile defense in 2010.

The company said it will cut about 250 people nationwide. The company is offering career service and assistance to affected employees.
