NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Republican Gov. Bill Haslam's administration is offering more than 2,000 state workers to apply for buyouts.
Letters detailing the offers were sent out last week, but weren't expected to reach the affected workers until Tuesday because of the Memorial Day holiday.
A spokeswoman for the Tennessee Department of Human Resources said details about the packages and a breakdown of how many buyouts are being sought by the state agency wouldn't be available until sometime Tuesday.
The deadline to apply for the buyouts is July 17.
