Gov. Brown's 2012-2013 budget was released this week, and it includes several cuts that will directly impact state employees, first among them the elimination of another 3,000 state employee positions on top of the 15,000 positions cut in the 2011-2012 budget.

At a press conference covering the budget release, Director of Finance Ana Matosantos stated that "many" of the 3,000 positions to be cut will be within the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR), and that the "goal is to redirect employees to facilities that have vacancies and minimize layoffs to the extent possible." According to the budget, CDCR's budget will be cut by $1.1 billion, or 18%. Read more after the jump.
