Details from State Human Relations about the state employee furloughs announced on June 17.

The Office of Financial Management estimated transportation revenue losses to the state due to the COVID-19 pandemic could total as much as $100 million per month. OFM asked all state agencies to prepare options reflecting a 15% cut in their budgets. For WSDOT, this translates to a $947 million reduction in the 2019-2021 biennium. Projected losses will require agency-wide expenditure adjustments, including reductions in both the capital and operating activities of the department.
