The state work week law has resulted in approximately 14,250 metric tons of increased carbon emissions since it went into effect in September 2011. The law ended the four-day work week, a common sense measure to protect air quality that actually saved taxpayers $203,000 annually. Now, we are all breathing in the results of this legislative action. Senate Bill 112 would not bring back the four-day work week, but it would soften its effects by allowing state agencies some flexibility to offer services by Internet or phone.
If you like breathing clean air more than you like waiting in line to fill out paperwork in person, you should support SB112.
