FRANKFORT — State offices will be closed Friday.
The move is part of a budget balancing plan that includes furloughs for most state workers. Gov. Steve Beshear’s administration says the furloughs — six days from July 1 to June 30 2011 — will save the state $24 million. State offices were already closed Thursday to observe Veteran’s Day.
A limited number of state offices will remain open, including those that provide emergency services. State police, criminal justice employees and those that provide care in state-run health institutions such as mental health facilities will continue to work on Friday.
