Shorter is cleaner

Since it went into effect in September of 2011, the state's five-day workweek law has added approximately 14,250 metric tons of carbon emissions into the air.

The law ended the state government's four-day workweek, a common-sense measure to protect air quality that saved taxpayers $203,000 a year.

Now, we are all breathing in the results of this legislative action. Senate Bill 112 would not bring back the four-day workweek, but it mitigates the current law 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, support SB112.
