Because of budget problems and the parties not able to reach a compromise, each government department is required to reduce their budgets. Homeland Security has chosen to do this by either furloughing agents or eliminating overtime, and Air Traffic Controllers are having mandatory furlough days, so instead of 10 controllers on a shift they'll have 9 and the employee will not be paid for that day.

Some of these problems should have been corrected before the budget fell apart. TSA agents regularly work overtime. They like it, because they get paid more for those hours. Better scheduling would prevent this budget buster.

Anyway, we are all going to have to suffer an inconvenience to bring the budget into better balance (it's never going to balance) and if that means standing in a security line for 40 minutes rather than 10, that's what we have to do. The TSA could have picked a different way to reduce their costs, but they want it this way. I actually think TSA will find they can schedule better and work more efficiently. Limit carry-ons. Enforce the size limits. Have an 'express' lane for people who have no carry-ons. A few years ago when England prohibited all carry ons (only a book and a ticket, if I recall), there were no lines at all!

14 days
Hopefully. Looks like there is no way to predict this one. Including today I have 7 more days of work until I am off for 23 days. I am ready to stay 2+ hours every night past my shift like I did last night (supposed to be off at midnight, clocked out at 2A.M.) till I am done before vacation.

Pretty sure that's info for the Roaming Jessica signup and not an IGT.

I think they are assigning now. The last two days they've released more rooms and categories back on to the website, so I figured they must have started figuring out what they have available. The OV (cat 9) cabins were listed for the first time in a long time, and even some 4A and 4B's were back.

Good luck in the assignment pool.

You have to login periodically and check. The *GT tracking thread shows most assignments made 13 days out or later, so we should hopefully start seeing room numbers tomorrow.

Has anyone had any luck hearing from SAS transportation? I've filled out their form twice in the last week and heard NADA.

We have a confirmation email and a contact # to call when we arrive. It took a few days & went into my junk mail. With the sequestration, I hope our 4.30 flight is not delayed so that we miss the last SAS shuttle.
