California State Furloughs - Judge Rules - Take Two
Judge Patrick Marlette clarified his ruling on the governor's furlough order, stating that the ruling was silent on matters pertaining to the offices of the state's elected officials.
The state offices involved include the Office of the Attorney General, the Office of the Secretary of State, the Office of the Treasurer, the Office of the Insurance Commissioner, the Office of the Superintendent of Instruction, and the Office of the Lieutenant Governor.
In other Budget Crisis news, certain counties in the state of California are gearing up to find ways of not paying the state the monies they are required to pay.
Which seems only fair, since counties are among those that the state stopped paying in February.
Since tomorrow is Furlough Friday, a previous coworker sent an me an email saying that she's decided this is the governor's way of saying she works too hard and should take a day for herself.
I told her that was nice, and I'll be sending the bill for my mani-pedi-facial to Mr. Schwarzenegger.
