RICHMOND, Virginia: Governor Bob McDonnell is proposing a four day work week for most state employees as part of an effort to save the Commonwealth money[1].

The idea of a shorter work week won approval of the Governor's Commission on Reform and Restructuring by an unanimous vote. Virginia would become the second state in the nation to implement a four day work-week for state employees. Utah was the first state in the nation to adopt a four day work-week[1].

The Virginia Department of Planning and Budget estimates that the plan would save Virginia over $3 million dollars. The only agency that will exempted from the four-day work week plan is the Department of Motor Vehicles. The plan would apply to 25 state agencies[1].
