|On March 1, 2013, President Obama ordered into effect the across-the-board spending |
|cuts (commonly referred to as sequestration) required by the Balanced Budget and    |
|Emergency Deficit Control Act, as amended. Under the order, the Bureau of Labor     |
|Statistics (BLS) must cut its current budget by more than $30 million, 5 percent of |
|the current 2013 appropriation, by September 30, 2013. In order to help achieve     |
|these savings and protect core programs, the BLS will eliminate two programs,       |
|including Mass Layoff Statistics, and all "measuring green jobs" products. The final|
|release of Mass Layoffs Statistics data will occur on June 21st, with publication of|
|the May 2013 data.                                                                  |
