And then you have to add all the local county/metro agencies too.

I'd bet they could all disappear with little affect other than the wail of the newly unemployed.

BTW, like the new web look. The pink previous version just seared my eyes! :-)

Lol Crucis, the pink was for a good cause, but yes, I prefer this one too.

Julie- THAT is the real problem... Too many overlapping agencies, too many duplicates at the Federal, State and Local levels...
