Government shutdown: Local reactions, impact on you

Correctional officers, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, U.S. Marshals, TSA employees, Border Patrol officers, Coast Guard employees, Forest Service firefighters and Weather Service forecasters are all expected to continue working without pay.

A Christmastime standoff in Congress over funding USA operations has political strategists in both parties wondering: What if they had a government shutdown and no one noticed?

"We typically don't know a whole lot more than what some of the news outlets are reporting", Corey Ertl, rangeland management specialist for the Dolores Ranger District of the U.S. Forest Service, said Friday morning.

Maloney said as he has done in the past, he will tell the House administration office to withhold his pay during the government shutdown.

Nine of 15 Cabinet-level departments and dozens of agencies would face a lapse in funding, including the departments of Homeland Security, Transportation, Interior, Agriculture and State and Justice, as well as national parks and forests. And almost all staff at NASA - which has thousands of Texas workers - would be sent home as well, according to Space.com.

Way back in the day, shutdowns usually weren't that big a deal.

Spending on mandatory programs including such as Social Security will continue, while the US will keep making government debt payments.

Almost 90 percent of the Department of Homeland Security's 240,000 employees will be at work because they're considered essential. That includes mail delivery, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements, Social Security checks and military and law enforcement operations - including border security, which is at the root of the funding conflict.

The Titans probably aren't going to want Mariota leading the way for Henry too often, but he did throw one memorable block. This is a pivotal three-game stretch this game and the Titans can not afford to lose any of the remaining games they have.

In Washington, the museums along the National Mall will remain open at least through January 1, but Smithsonian officials said they will reevaluate the situation if the shutdown continues into the new year.

Trump's acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, came from the Office of Management and Budget, where he spent time finding ways to keep open services including national parks and monuments. In the past, however, they have been repaid retroactively even if they were ordered to stay home. "Congress should not get paid until it does its job".

After a pair of government shutdowns forced by congressional Republicans during the mid-1990s, the GOP saw a drop in their polls but ultimately retained control of both houses. "It's Christmastime. It's the holidays".

Federal workers are exempted from furloughs if their jobs are national security-related or if they perform essential activities that "protect life and property".

More than 400,000 federal employees are expected to work without pay, while an additional 380,000 federal employees can not work during the shutdown. About 16,000 National Park Service employees - 80 percent of the agency's workforce - will be furloughed, and many parks will close.

Meanwhile, more than 380,000 employees will be furloughed - including almost all of NASA and Housing and Urban Development and 41,000 Commerce Department employees. They happened every year when Jimmy Carter was president, averaging 11 days each.

The shutdown would be partial because it affects only federal agencies that haven't yet had their appropriations funded by Congress.
