"Employees would work 10-hour days four times a week, although some agencies -- including those involved in law enforcement, public health, higher education and departments that generate revenue, such as museums -- would be exempt.
The state could save $3.19 million by moving 25 agencies to four-day workweeks and closing hundreds of state-owned buildings, according to a preliminary estimate by the Virginia Department of Planning and Budget. That includes $1.5 million on energy, $880,000 on cleanup and $810,000 on overtime."
At this stage it is only a proposal, but it is definitely worth looking into. However, wouldn't we save even more money if we looked into eliminating programs, and unnecessary positions?
