State Agency Furloughs Scheduled

Given the historic budget deficit facing the state, Governor Doyle is utilizing furloughs as a cost saving measure. The Governor directed state agencies to develop a plan to furlough state employees for 16 days over the two-year budget period. Many state agencies are choosing to close down completely for certain days to comply with this requirement. I would encourage individuals that need to work with state agencies to utilize the calendar linked above to ensure that the state agency is open.
