The current recession has reduced state revenues, and has forced the Legislature to make deep cuts in agency budgets. Coping with these cuts requires closing state offices. State workers affected by the closures will take unpaid furloughs on those days. We apologize for any inconvenience these closures might cause, and we look forward to restoration of a full work schedule for all state agencies when the economy improves. 
 
The designated closure days will not affect the Oregon University System or the legislative branch of government.  
 
Please note the following furlough days* for the next two-year 2011-2013 budget period:
