State Worker furlough chat set for Tuesday

Next week, The State Worker blog will host an hour-long chat about the California Supreme Court's much-anticipated Monday morning furlough ruling. You can plug into the live session right here on Tuesday from 11 a.m. to noon. We'll take questions and ask some of our own during what is sure to be a lively 60 minutes.

(Yes, we know it's not an ideal time, but we'll be tied up Monday with the court news. Another chat has been scheduled for the noon hour on Tuesday. We figured Wednesday was too late. So we picked the least-bad time for our event.)

If you can't join the conversation live, you can replay it later on this blog, since The Bee archives chats.


On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites. We've heard from hundreds of you already and we're listening. Please continue to add your thoughts and questions here. We also encourage you to write Letters to the Editor on this and other topics.
