Exceptions To Hiring Freeze In OR Government

  SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Gov. John Kitzhaber's top managers have
approved more than 1,000 exceptions to a state government hiring
freeze, most on the grounds of protecting public safety, since the
freeze was ordered six weeks ago. The Oregonian reports that only
about 200 appeals have been turned down. After state tax
collections fell short of what was forecast, Kitzhaber ordered the
freeze effective Dec. 14 and created an "exception committee" of
five top managers to hear requests to fill jobs.
