Denver (AP) - Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter is ordering state employees to take four more unpaid furlough days.

That's in addition to the four they already are taking.

Ritter says the global economic downturn is continuing to impact state government.

He says the eight closure days will save about $27.2 million in FY 09-10, which started July 1 and ends June 30. All the days are:
Nov. 27
Dec. 31
Jan. 15
Feb. 12
April 2
