Lame Duck Reorganization Cutting Green Jobs to Promote Outsourcing

Reclamation Jettisoning Environmental Functions, Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER), August 18, 2008.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is rapidly downsizing its environmental capabilities by forcing scores of Denver-based specialists to go into retirement under threat of layoff, according to documents released today by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). This massive lame duck restructuring will force the next administration to contract for the eliminated functions.

Among the services being cut are “The Center’s world renowned library.” There are links at the PEER site above to more details.

Thanks and a tip of the FGI hat to Bernadine Abbott Hoduski!
