Sequester Fallout

Posted on 3rd May 2013 at 16:04

The federal budget sequester has claimed another victim, as the annual Open House at the Cascades Volcano Observatory in Vancouver is being cancelled. The open house was originally scheduled for tomorrow, but officials with the U. S. Geological Survey say that because of major budget cuts, they can’t support any “extracurricular” activities. The last open house was held in May of 2010, with about 12 hundred people attending.
