More Furlough Days Not Welcomed In D-A Offices
But county prosecutors in Wisconsin are suddenly checking their calendars, looking for times to take state-ordered furlough days. The choice is either take those days off, or be reduced to part-timer status. And assistant D-A Jessica Skemp in La Crosse County says the furloughs are not good for moving court cases along.
Skemp says prosecutors are being told by the state to take six furlough days before the middle of June. And that's in addition to the five days a year they were required to take under former Governor Doyle's budget.
