Another legislator furloughs herself

Sen. Janet Greenip, an Anne Arundel County Republican, last week joined the dozen or so legisaltors who have siad they will voluntarily give up part of their pay to share hte pain with rank-and-file state employees who will be furloughed to save money. She is, to my knowledge, the first senator to announce she's volunteering for a furlough.
