Calif. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's furlough order imposed on prison guards may end up devouring half the savings in the long run, warns an official of the California Correctional Peace Officers Association, according to a report by the dailybulletin.com.

"Prisons don't close three Fridays a month," said Chuck Alexander, a vice president of the association. "This governor saved a couple of bucks yesterday, but the next one will have to pay three bucks tomorrow."

Alexander's warning is backed up by a report from state Auditor Elaine Howle: Custody staff's growing vacation and holiday leave balances that were compounded by furloughs represent a future liability to the state of at least $546 million and could be more than $1 billion, that official advised recently.
