Plans released to lay off nearly 800 workers

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Preliminary plans have been released to layoff nearly 800 state employees.

Layoffs have been proposed by 15 state agencies as part of a plan to cut ten percent across the board from the state budget.

The plans will be processed but not implemented to allow time for ongoing negotiations with three unions representing state employees.
