Staffing in the state's mine-safety office will be slashed 37 percent to deal with a steep budget cut approved by the legislature this year, according to an order Gov. Steve Beshear filed Friday to restructure the agency.

The reorganization will leave the division with 88 full-time positions, down from the current level of 141, according to information provided with Beshear's executive order.
