Mr. Hammon asked why the positions are mostly support staff.

Mr. Tolman responded one is the assistant to the legal department. Many of the hours have been accrued over a matter of years. ITD plans on working with the managers and employees to bring the levels down and better manage the employees’ time.

Mr. Goodenough asked if the legislation indicated what should be done with excessive hours over the limit.

Mr. Tolman explained that anything over the limit by the end of FY09 and anything earned over the limit beginning July 2008 would be lost.

Mr. Hammon asked if the State Controllers Office could run a statewide report on balances over the limit as stated by SB1252.
