State Furloughs Postponed
Sacramento, CA — State workers that had been threatened by a furlough mandate will report to work today.
Yesterday a state appellate court judge denied Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s request to start a new series of furloughs. The furloughs would have affected approximately 144,000 state employees. Schwarzenegger’s administration plans to file an appeal to the State Supreme Court today, hoping that furloughs can start next Friday.
