After pestering them all week, DPA just sent over the specifics on the 5,000 layoff notices ordered by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger last week. Click here to see the chart. We're working on a story for tomorrow.
Worth noting: The administration allowed Health and Human Services to count 368 vacated positions toward the 871 jobs it's eliminating. Veterans Affairs got to count 32 vacancies toward its target of 111 layoffs.
The administration says that between 6,000 and 6,500 people moved out of general fund positions after layoff warning notices went out last February. That means the general fund will have shed 11,000 jobs once this round of layoffs is over.
"And there will be more layoffs coming," DPA spokeswoman Lynelle Jolley told us, as the state confronts eliminating, downsizing and combining programs and departments.
