Furlough Fridays Once More

The State of California still has no budget and Governor Schwarzenegger has been stymied for the time being in reducing state workers to the federal minimum wage.  As reported by Shane Goldmacher in this Los Angeles Times story, Governor Schwarzenegger has issued another executive order requiring most California state workers to take the second, third and fourth Fridays off each month.   This will affect the Department of Corporations.   The Secretary of State is a constitutional officer and her office did not comply with the Governor's prior furlough order.  I'm assuming that the same will be true again.  However, no one at the Secretary of State's office was able to confirm that the office will remain open on furlough Fridays.
