Gov. Asa Hutchinson's office says executive branch jobs have dropped 3 percent on his watch, worth a savings of $7 million a year.

Executive-branch state agencies ended March with almost 800 fewer positions than in January of 2015, according to data released Monday by the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration. Salary savings resulting from these increased efficiencies are anticipated to save the State an estimated $7 million by June 30, the end of Fiscal 2016.

The data, compiled by the Department of Finance and Administration’s Office of Personnel Management, measures the number of people employed by agencies who answer directly to the governor as March 31st, the end of the first quarter of calendar 2016. At that time, executive-branch agencies employed 25,733 people, or 795 fewer than were employed in January 2015, a decline of about three percent.
