MADISON, Wis. (AP) — All state offices will be closed on Monday as a mandated furlough day.
Monday is the third required furlough day for nearly all state workers. Last year Gov. Jim Doyle ordered 16 furlough days over a two-year span to help save money so the state budget could be balanced.
Eight days, including Monday, were required furlough days across most of state government. Another eight were left up to individual agencies to schedule.
The University of Wisconsin System is on a different schedule from the state. Monday is a furlough day only for UW System administration, but all campuses are open.
