With state across the nation facing major budget shortfalls, Governor Jim Doyle says some have proposed closing down public schools for a few weeks to help cut costs.
The Governor says such moves could save money, but he doesn't have any plans to pursue similar action in Wisconsin. Doyle says it's not going to happen here because he's not going to let it.
The idea of furloughing state workers is another possible cost cutting measure some states have approached. Doyle says he'd prefer to continue with the state's current plan of leaving jobs vacant when a state employee leaves a position.
However, Doyle admits both are options he'll consider, if necessary, due to the economy growing worse.
