Senate Adopts “Challenges For Change” But Skeptics Not Confident About $38 Million Savings

"I voted against Challenges for Change because it strikes me as empty legislation," [Sen. Dick McCormack] told the Time Argus. "We have just passed a bill telling everybody to do their job. That strikes me as sort of empty and not a very good use of legislative time."

State employees left to wonder how the savings will be achieved if the Challenges For Change concept does not produce the savings being advertised.
