Back to 2010 Issues



Other Budget Issues

Last Updated: 1/27/2010
Budget Issue: Unallocated reductions in state department personnel costs (described by the administration as a "workforce cap").
Program: Reduction for Employee Compensation
Finding or Recommendation: Recommend that the Legislature avoid making unallocated personnel cost reductions for departments, as proposed by the Governor. In particular, it would be difficult for the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to achieve any significant unallocated savings without specific policy and operational changes.
