State Controller Challenges Governor’s Furlough Order

Sacramento, CA — California State Controller John Chiang has filed legal papers challenging Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger´s executive order mandating state furloughs for multipile agencies.

Chiang filed court documents Wednesday in Sacramento Superior Court that claim Schwarzenegger´s attempt to furlough state workers for two days each month is unlawful.

Chiang says the Governor will need a court order to enforce the twice monthly furlough plan that would affect offices such as the Department of Motor Vehicles.
