New Internet Policy Cracking Down On State Employees

A new state Internet policy could lead to possible suspensions.

In an effort to crack down on unproductive workers , the Ky. Transportation Cabinet has implemented a tough new Internet-use policy.

State workers who use the Internet to read a newspaper, visit a search engine or browse retail sites could face a suspension.

The cabinet has been examining the websites viewed by nearly 200-employees.

So far about eight workers have been suspended under the new "pilot" program.

Cabinet Inspector General David Rays said earlier this week he's concerned the suspended workers might have been unfairly targeted.
