MONTGOMERY (AP) – Lt. Gov. Jim Folsom’s office is the latest state office to go to a four-day work week for employees.

Folsom says the change will occur Monday to give employees relief from higher gas prices. Folsom says his office will still be open five days per week and will be open longer hours — from 8 a.m. to 5:45 p.m.

The state treasurer’s office, the state auditor’s office and the Farmer’s Market Authority already have some employees working four 10-hour days instead of five eight-hour days. But the offices are still staffed five days a week.
