Tuesday is furlough day for state employees

STATE GOVERNMENT -- Plan ahead today if you need something from a Washington Fish and Wildlife Department office -- or most other state government offices.

Monday is the Presidents Day holiday and Tuesday is another furlough day for most Washington state employees.

This will be the seventh of 10 unpaid days in the current budget period to cut state spending by $70 million. Law enforcement and other crucial workers are exempted, including state wildlife enforcement agents.

The next furlough day will be March 28.
