Gov. Butch Otter’s office issued this statement this afternoon on two controversial personnel rule changes his administration imposed on Aug. 24:
“The changes detailed in the temporary rule represent responsible stewardship of limited taxpayer resources and are consistent with best management practices in any large organization – public or private. It’s the right thing to do. The Legislature will have the opportunity to review and make its own determination on the rules in January. In the meantime, we look forward to discussing this personnel function with any legislator who has questions or concerns.”
