A bill that would let state employees with direct payroll deposit receive electronic earnings statements has passed the Senate on a unanimous vote and is now on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's desk.
The measure by Sen. Tony Strickland, R-Moorpark, would save the state up to $3.7 million each year in printing costs. The caveat: "This bill will be contingent upon the funding of the State Controller's 21st century project, which will have the capabilities to carry out this function," according to a Strickland press release.
