Senator: H&W furloughs a sign of things to come…

Here's a link to my full story at on the new "Friday furloughs" that will close every Health & Welfare office in the state - except state hospitals - at noon every other Friday, and send employees home early without pay to save money. They start Jan. 22nd, a week from this Friday. "There are going to be a number of things like this that will have to take place with the budget situation," said Sen. Joyce Broadsword, R-Sagle, vice-chairwoman of the Senate Health & Welfare Committee. "When all you've got left is payroll, you've gotta go somewhere."
