USGS Postpones The National Map Users Conference and USGS Community for Data Integration Workshop
Printer Friendly versionPrinter Friendly


Kevin Gallagher, Associate Director for Core Science Systems, for the USGS has released a statement regarding the state of both The National Map Users Conference and USGS Community for Data Integration Workshop.

As you are likely aware, due to the failure of Congress to reach a deal on balanced deficit reduction to avoid sequestration, the President was required by law to issue a sequestration order on March 1, 2013 canceling approximately $85 billion in budgetary resources across the Federal government for the remainder of the Federal fiscal year.

At this time, the U.S. Geological Survey is taking every step to mitigate the effects of these cuts, focusing first on our most important mission -- providing science that helps protect lives and property. But while we seek to minimize the effect these budget cuts will have on our core mission critical functions, sequestration will have a very real impact on our science, and on the support we provide daily to the American public.

The entire statement can be found here.
