Many state workers feared layoffs during the Gov. Bill Richardson administration, but got furloughs instead.
Now, it looks like the state's budget crisis means some employees will have to lose their jobs.
The state Personnel Board is meeting this morning on just how many jobs will be axed. Among the agencies slated for cuts are the Economic Development Department, the Commission on the Status of Women, the State Land Office, the Organic Commodity Commission, the Regulation and Licensing Department and the Public Education Department.
