Federal Diary: BIA to begin layoffs amid stimulus
"The Bureau of Indian Affairs will soon lay off staff members, but it's not clear how many. The bureau said the furloughs include nine road maintenance workers. Three teachers and 40 support staff workers at four Bureau of Indian Education schools will also be furloughed because of declining enrollment.

The layoffs begin tomorrow and will continue through April 10, according to BIA spokeswoman Nedra Darling.

But the administrator of the Federation of Indian Service Employees said the agency sent it notices that indicate about 200 workers would be laid off."
