State layoffs hit juvenile services, corrections dept.

Tom Fahey reports on the first round of layoffs following the rejection of the state labor contract.
Corrections, Environment, Health and Human Services, Treasury, Agriculture, Information Technology and just about every other area of government are seeing jobs cuts or transfers in moves to save $25 million in personnel costs. The judicial and legislative branches of government have to contribute $4 million of the total savings. Layoffs will be effective before the end of the month.

JJS director William Fenniman said staff cuts at the Sununu center are easier to absorb right now because population is so low. Built to handle 144 young people, the former youth Development Center had only 63 youngsters yesterday, he said.
