CBP Delaying Furloughs

CBPchopperU.S. Customs and Border Protection has delayed furloughs of agency employees pending a review of the new continuing resolution, according to the Washington Post.

Thomas Winkowski, CBP deputy commissioner, said in a memo obtained by the Post that the CR helped the agency mitigate some impacts of reduced funding on its workforce.

According to The Hill newspaper, the CR gave the Department of Homeland Security a full appropriations bill.

CBP previously planned to furlough border agents for up to 14 days in order to implement cuts under sequestration, Pete Kasperowicz reports for The Hill.

The agency has postponed its de-authorization of overtime as well, Kasperowicz reports.
