State office closure

Local offices of the Department of Human Services (DHS) and other state agencies will be closed Friday, Mar 19 as 26,500 state employees take mandatory, unpaid furloughs on that day.The closure is a result of budget cuts adopted by the Legislature due to the current recession. It is the second of 10 closure dates the state has scheduled over the current two-year budget period. Each day of closure will save an estimated $2 million in personnel costs statewide.
