The U.S. Federal government stopped issuing the 30-year Treasury bonds (often called long-bonds) on October 31, 2001. However, due to demand from pension funds and large, long-term institutional investors, along with a need to diversify the Treasury's liabilities, the 30-year Treasury bond was re-introduced in February 2006.
