The California Supreme Court says furloughs of state workers can resume while it reviews whether governors have the authority to mandate unpaid days off.

The announcement Wednesday was a victory for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has sought to save the state money by imposing another round of furloughs.

Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear says furloughs for about 150,000 state workers will begin Friday.

The Republican governor recently ordered workers to be furloughed three days a month, following a previous round that ended in June. McLear says the furloughs are estimated to save the state $150 million a month.
