KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The local offices of several federal agencies will be closed Friday as a result of the government sequester.

The sequester, which took effect March 1, cut the budgets of a number of government agencies, prompting employee furloughs.

To minimize the impact of the closures on the public, the agencies have scheduled the furlough days to be next to holiday weekends.

Both the IRS and the HUD offices in Knoxville will be closed Friday, May 24 as a result. Both offices reopen Tuesday, May 28.
