    FILE - This March 22, 2013 file photo shows the exterior of the Internal Revenue Service building in Washington. No one answered the phone at the IRS hotline for tax help. Forget about advice on avoiding foreclosures at one of the Housing and Urban Development offices nationwide. Roughly five percent of the federal workforce _ 115,000 people at six government agencies _ got an unpaid day off on Friday due to the automatic cuts to the government budget. The furloughs forced some agencies such as the IRS and HUD to drastically scale back operations. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)

    FILE - In this Oct. 6, 2011, file photo, senior Border Patrol Agent Sheldon Cooper monitors the International Railroad Bridge in Buffalo, N.Y. Government agencies vary widely in how they are dealing with $85 billion in across-the-board budget cuts that went into effect last week. Federal workers could face seven days of furloughs at the Housing and Urban Development Department, but Homeland Security personnel might see twice that number. (AP Photo/David Duprey, File)

    This September 2011 photo provided by Vanguard Defense Industries, shows a ShadowHawk drone with Montgomery County, Texas, SWAT team members. In a major step toward opening U.S. skies to thousands of unmanned drones, federal officials Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013, solicited proposals to create six drone test sites around the country. The FAA has granted several hundred permits to universities, police departments and other government agencies to use small, low-flying drones. For example, the sheriff’s department in Montgomery County, Texas, has a 50-pound ShadowHawk helicopter drone intended to supplement its SWAT team.

    FILE-This Monday, June 18, 2012, file photo shows the Oracle headquarters in Redwood City, Calif. Oracle's earnings matched analyst estimates in the latest quarter, but a revenue decline signaled the business software maker is having a tougher time closing deals. The fiscal first-quarter results announced Thursday, Sept. 20, 2012, are the latest indication that companies and government agencies are clamping down on technology spending amid mounting uncertainty about the economy.

    In this Jan. 30, 2012 photo, corrections officer Roy Limon guards inmates on their way to dinner at the Imperial Valley's Calipatria State Prison in Calipatria, Calif. Limon has been working at the prison since it opened in 1992. Calipatria and another state prison that opened nearby in 1993 employ 2,400 people - a big reason why federal, state and local government agencies account for one in three jobs in the Imperial Valley, even more than farming. Nationwide, government provides only one in six jobs. (AP Photo/Gregory Bull)
