Those Virginia employees who remain will have to take a day's furlough and a cut in the state-funded pension next year, the Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch reported Wednesday.
About half of the 593 layoffs -- 293 -- will come from closing corrections facilities in Brunswick and Botetourt counties and the Juvenile Correctional Center in Natural Bridge, the Times-Dispatch said.
Another 183 layoffs come from Health and Human Resources, including 70 administrative and 13 care positions at mental-health facilities, the newspaper said. Education jobs were spared.
The state is eliminating another 336 unfilled jobs in addition to the 593 layoffs.
The latest layoffs are expected to save $170 million. Other agency reductions and cost-saving measures are expected to help close an expected $1.35 billion budget shortfall for fiscal 2010, which began July 1, the newspaper said.
The Times-Union said it was the fourth time Kaine has had to make cuts to the two-year $77 billion state budget.
