2 Wash. agencies to close for one day on July 6

TUESDAY, JUNE 29, 2010, 11:47 A.M.

OLYMPIA — Two state agencies will close for one day next week because of state budget cuts.

The superintendent of public instruction’s office and the Department of Retirement Systems will both be closed next Tuesday under a new state furlough plan.

The offices at both agencies will be closed, and about 650 employees will be on unpaid leave that day.

The superintendent’s office will later determine whether additional days need to be taken, while retirement systems will continue closing down one day a month through mid-2011. For other state agencies, the first furlough day begins on July 12.
