State offices to close Monday for furlough

March 27, 2011 

More than 45 state agencies, boards or commissions are closing offices Monday to observe the eighth of 10 furloughs ordered by the Legislature last year to save money.

The state Office of Financial Management has said the closures would save about $73 million in all state funds over the fiscal year that ends June 30.

The two remaining furlough days of the year are April 22 and June 10.
