California state workers layoff process begins

With budget negotiations stalled, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will begin the process of laying off thousands of state workers. Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear said Monday the administration will issue 20,000 notices to employees with the least seniority.

The governor had delayed releasing the notices Friday when it appeared lawmakers would pass a compromise plan to fill the state’s $42 billion shortfall. But a marathon weekend session has so far failed to produce the necessary votes.
