FBI Prepares Furlough Days for Agents if Fiscal Cliff Deal Not Reached

The plan under consideration would give agents one unpaid furlough day roughly on a bi-weekly basis, the Journal reported.

That includes special agents.

The plan could change, FBI officials said, because the crisis could be averted by political compromise, the Journal wrote.
