Gregoire on revenue forecast: Take 2 percent more out of your budgets, state agencies

Gov. Chris Gregoire is ordering cabinet-level state agencies to cut their employee costs by 2 percent more than budgeted.

“Agencies can hire employees where needed to accomplish their core business and enact the reforms I am asking for, but they cannot exceed the cap I am instituting today,” she said.

She’s also asking higher education and state officials that oversee other agencies to also cut back.
