Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate -

The threat of a government shutdown looms as Congress debates and attempts to pass its continuing resolution today. Should no agreement be reached by the start of the new fiscal year at midnight, Washington, D.C. will come to a standstill. Agencies and departments have already submitted their contingency plans for a shutdown. The Department of the Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will all experience furloughs and the halting of programs. The Department of Energy reported that multi-year and no-year appropriations will sustain certain work through the shutdown. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which has leftover appropriations, can survive for about a week at relatively normal operations.
