Utah's 4-day workweek to be evaluated in October

UTAH - State officials likely won't be able to determine how much money the state is saving with its four-day workweek until October.

The one-year pilot program under which state employees work 10 hours a day, four days a week was set to expire in August. But state lawmakers were told it will take another couple of months before utility bills can be analyzed to determine how much money is being saved by closing one day a week.

Gov.

Jon Huntsman had set a $3 million energy savings goal for the program, but administration officials say that likely won't be met.

Lawmakers were told it's necessary to review a year's worth of utility bills to account for fluctuations in energy prices and temperatures.
