FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- A recently released report from the state legislature’s Office of Fiscal Analysis showed that state agencies saved more than $37 million in overtime costs during Fiscal Year 2016, which ended on June 30, about $4 million more than reported last month.
This amounts to a 14.5 percent drop when compared to the previous fiscal year, as indicated in a letter sent from Office of Policy and Management Secretary Ben Barnes to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy Tuesday afternoon.
“This updated report demonstrates our state employees, managers, and commissioners are doing a tremendous job of delivering top-notch services efficiently,” Malloy said. “These steps are critical to right-sizing government, but there is still much work to be done. The world is changing and we are working to change state government with it.”
