Instead of furloughs, why not make all employees and elected officials pay for their family insurance coverage. I am sure this will save mega dollars. School teachers and employees have to pay for family coverage - and I don't know of any companies that pay for the employee's family coverage. They offer it to the employees but employees have to pay for it if they want it. I would be interested to find out what the cost of this coverage is - city and county employees and elected officials.
