High court to review state furloughs
The state Supreme Court said Thursday it would hear arguments in a lawsuit brought against the Schwarzenegger administration challenging the forced furloughs of workers at the State Compensation Insurance Fund.
At issue is whether the governor has the authority to furlough state employees through an executive order, the court said. The court noted that it may review the case while considering issues raised in other legal challenges targeting the administration’s furlough policies.
