The federal government shutdown in a budget standoff means a delay in next week's scheduled release of Texas unemployment figures for September.

The Texas Workforce Commission on Friday announced the Oct. 18 jobless update would be postponed indefinitely due to national figures not available from the U.S. Department of Labor.

The shutdown began Oct. 1, leading to furloughs for some 800,000 federal workers and the closure of many government facilities.

The TWC produces state-level monthly economic estimates in cooperation with federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.
