A government shutdown probably won't have a big effect on internet security

A government shutdown probably won't have a big effect on internet security

The NIH is the government's primary agency responsible for biomedical and public health research across 27 institutes and centers. Military veterans would watch helplessly as the processing of their disability claims came to a halt.

Government agencies began the process of shutting down at midnight Friday after Congress failed to pass a spending bill to keep them operating.

Prince George's County resident Wanda McClary said she has been pulling as many extra shifts as she can as a security guard at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, knowing that a shutdown means the museum could close and the 52-year-old and her colleagues would face their own financial shortfall. But it would have to furlough workers if Congress went weeks before approving new funding.

"Day one, the world doesn't fall apart", Cox said.

Since the closure began at the start of a weekend, numerous immediate effects will be muted for most Americans.

Partial shutdowns can be expensive, too.

In 2013, when the government shut down for 16 days, several thousand federal employees in the Washington area were furloughed.

According to an interactive map from The National Treasury Employees Union, Georgia has 136,911 federal employees - the seventh most in the country.

With the US government on the verge of yet another shutdown, it's worth noting just how much the episode five years ago disrupted the economy and the lives of millions of Americans. That would change if a shutdown drags on. He said his agency hasn't yet determined whether the IRS employees developing new tax forms to conform with the law are deemed essential, meaning they would still report to work during a shutdown.

Reed said if there's another shutdown, Washington will be able to access revenues from local taxes. He did host Schumer for talks on Friday afternoon when the Democratic minority leader claimed to have pushed hard for a deal - even putting the issue of funding for Trump's promised border wall on the table.

"I would say it's a virtual certainty" that the larger paychecks will be delayed if there's a lengthy shutdown, Owens said.

The White House said Friday that 1,056 members of the Executive Office of the President would be furloughed, and 659, considered essential, would continue to report to work.

"We will be prepared for all contingencies, including of a lapse" in funding, Nauert said. "While NSA is not exempt from the legal requirement to carry out an orderly shutdown of government activities, our core functions will continue", the agency said in a statement.

Funding for the federal government actually ran out last October 1, and temporary spending agreements pushed the deadline back. "We need a long-term solution that addresses key concerns of the American people".

The workforce at the 17 US intelligence agencies would be pared way down, according to a person familiar with contingency procedures.

This group includes those dealing with public safety and national security, as well as soldiers on active duty.

While they can be kept on the job, federal workers can't be paid for days worked during a shutdown.

After previous government shutdowns, Congress passed measures to ensure that all unpaid workers received retroactive pay.

The Federal Aviation Administration represents the majority - 45,000 - of the Department of Transportation's more than 58,000 employees. Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, soldiers and air-traffic controllers would stay on the job even as other federal workers are furloughed.
