Like many other state governors, Gov. Jennifer Granholm of Michigan is facing a state deficit. Ms. Granholm needs to eliminate a $158 million shortfall in the $8.9 billion general budget. Cost-cutting measures include decreasing the state’s motor fleet, eliminating color copying, and turning lights off in state buildings at night. Ms. Granholm is also asking state employees to lower their cell phone use by 15 percent, for a saving of $150,000. Michigan isn’t alone in telling employees it’s time to limit using cell phones.
