State OT spending continues downward slide

Connecticut's state government reduced overtime spending by 6.7 percent in fiscal 2017, according to the nonpartisan Office of Fiscal Analysis.

The OFA report released Tuesday shows that during the fiscal year that ended June 30, state agencies had decreased overtime use by $14.7 million, to $204.4 million compared with $219 million a year ago.

The 2017 fiscal year ran from July 1, 2016, through June 30, 2017.

Of the five agencies that account for more than 93 percent of General Fund overtime expenditures, the Department of Children and Families (DCF) was the only one that increased expenditures to $21.7 million from $19.8 million a year ago.

The other departments to register decreases were the departments of Correction ($5.9 million less), Mental Health and Addiction Services ($2.6 million less), Developmental Services ($1.5 million less), and Emergency Services and Public Protection ($3.5 million less).
