US: National Organic Program announces staff furlough

USDA National Organic Program has announced that, effective October 1, all NOP staff will be furloughed pending reinstatement of funding by Congress. These staff will not be available by phone or email, and cannot carry out work for the Agency, until funding is restored. This means that many services will be delayed or interrupted. For example, staff can't send meeting cancellation notices. Therefore, if a budget isn't in place by Thursday, October 10, at 5:00 p.m. ET, the fall 2013 National Organic Standards Board meeting (October 22 - 24, 2013) will be cancelled.
