    So I guess I'm a believer now!

    woooooo-hoooooooooooo!

          • After reading an article in the NY Post today, I am hoping that the topic won't have too much affect on us. However, I can't pretend and say its not a concern to me.

              It is already affecting things, like it or not. Decisions are being made everyday now with thoughts of where the money is going to come from. When my class came through MANY years ago, they warned us that we were slated to be laid off from the Academy if the budget did not pass. Haven't heard anything like that nowadays, but you never know........

              • Hopefully this economy will turn itself around and head upwards slowly but surely. The only thing one can do now is remain positive and optomistic. If it doesn't, I'm willing to work for free throughout the entire academy. I'm sure many would.

                  Whoa, you would work for free during the academy... What about after the academy?

                    If need be, I would work the academy for free. The reason being is that it is training and that is a lesson that you can take with you for the rest of your life.
                    As far as after the academy, I would like/need to get paid lol. Thank you very much.

                          • Will Hiring Freeze Impact Police Protection? Detour Road Projects?
                            Reported by: Patrice Walsh

                            (New York State) - Hiring freezes are nothing unusual for businesses or government, but a hard hiring freeze is now in effect: no new workers can be hired without state approval and there will be workforce reductions across the board.

                            A hiring freeze will save the state money by eliminating jobs through attrition and layoffs. But could it also detour road projects?

                            "We haven't heard yet,” said Lori Maher of the DOT. “Once we know, we'll make that public."

                            What about public safety? Though the governor said he hesitates to cut police or emergency services, he still said that nothing is off the table. "We're looking at all the agencies.”

                            The State Police Benevolent Association released a statement, part of which is below:

                            “During past hiring freezes, N.Y. State troopers have been deemed absolutely essential positions, which Governor Paterson listed as the only exception to this possible hiring freeze. We will certainly be advocating for this continued prudent approach, as millions of New Yorkers rely on our dedicated troopers for highway safety and police protection. Our state troopers save lives, and New York State has always recognized that you cannot put a price tag on safety and security.”

                            Governor Paterson says he will listen to concerns about why jobs and services shouldn't be cut, as long as people offer alternatives.

                            The governor said he will outline a plan to reduce the state workforce sometime next week.

                            He said the actions he proposed will save the state $630 million. He’s asking lawmakers to reconvene in August to cut $600 million more.

                            • Because this post has already been quoted elsewhere...

                              The above post is just one of MANY different answers to the question that's on everyone's minds. Keep in mind, I quoted an article from the news media. Patrice Walsh tries to get it mostly right most of the time. I'm sure there are others here whom will come along with "official" information as it becomes available. Fact is, it just isn't available yet.

                              Please don't take my post as gospel.
