    CHP Furlough Information

    From the California Highway Patrol website:

    The CHP Is Open For Business

    Furlough InformationThe state is facing a $42 billion deficit and is in the midst of a fiscal crisis. In an effort to reduce spending so essential services are not jeopardized the Governor developed the State Furlough Program. The Furlough Program begins on February 6, 2009. During that time, many state employees will be furloughed on the first and third Friday of each month. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) has elected to maintain normal business operations to the greatest extent possible, with offices that serve the public remaining open during normal business hours. Local CHP offices, as well as the majority of our Headquarters operations, will be staffed on furlough days by uniformed personnel or a combination of uniformed and nonuniformed personnel where the Department has been granted flexability to furlough staff on days other than the first and third Fridays. The few offices that will be closed on furlough days are listed below. In addition to CHP offices being open we wish to ensure the public of the following:

    The CHP will maintain essential public safety services to ensure we continue to provide safety, service and security to the public. There will be no reduction in patrol services or response times to the public.

    Dispatch centers will remain adequately staffed on a 24/7 basis to be able to respond to emergency calls from the public.

    In order to ensure the safety of the commercial truck traffic on the state’s roadways, commercial vehicle inspection facilities will remain open.

    The following CHP operations will be closed on furlough days:

    Office of Legal Affairs - Sacramento
    Information Technology Section – Sacramento
    Administrative Services Division – Sacramento
    Fleet Operations – Sacramento
    Fleet Operations – Torrance
    Business Services Section – Sacramento
    Supply Services – Sacramento
    Human Resources - Sacramento

    If you need to urgently contact any of the above commands,
    please call (916) 657-7261.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
    [George Washington (1732 - 1799)]

    The citizens of California want to thank Gov. Arnold.

    Our state budget is not looking good either.

    Read something earlier about Michigan considering releasing prisoners early to save money. Nebraska has a 1.8% state budget increase, no direct cutbacks announced so far...wonder what's coming though.

    I guess shutting down the social trough would be too much to expect.

    I think the state of California should come up with a few more social programs for illegal aliens.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army

    I think they are. They are still saying they are cutting spending by only raising it 3% instead of 9% that was originally planned

    I'm not ready to blame Arnold just yet. He walked into fiscal problems started back during the Enron debacle, and California has been hit very hard by the mortgage crisis.

    Our legislature sucks.
