Shutdown America
On October 1, 2013, the United States federal government entered a shutdown suspending services not excepted by the Antideficiency Act.[1] Because Congress did not enact regular appropriations or a continuing resolution for the 2014 fiscal year, appropriations have lapsed and about 800,000 federal employees were indefinitely furloughed without pay, while another 1.3 million "excepted" employees were required to report to work for some indefinite period without pay until an appropriations bill is passed or their function is no longer excepted.

What's Affected by a Government Shutdown?

Below, find an overview of some of the government services and operations that will be impacted until Congress passes a budget to fund them again. For detailed information about specific activities at Federal agencies, please see federal government contingency plans.

  • Vital services that ensure seniors and young children have access to healthy food and meals may not have sufficient Federal funds to serve all beneficiaries in an extended lapse.

  • Call centers, hotlines and regional offices that help veterans understand their benefits will close to the public.

  • Veterans’ compensation, pension, education, and other benefits could be cut off in the case of an extended  shutdown.

  • Every one of America’s national parks and monuments, from Yosemite to the Smithsonian to the Statue of Liberty, will be immediately closed.

  • New applications for small business loans and loan guarantees will be immediately halted.

  • Research into life-threatening diseases and other areas will stop, and new patients won’t be accepted into clinical  trials at the National Institutes of Health.

  • Work to protect consumers, ranging from child product safety to financial security to the safety of hazardous waste facilities, will cease. The EPA will halt non-essential inspections of chemical facilities and drinking water systems.

  • Permits and reviews for planned energy and transportations projects will stop, preventing companies from working on these projects. Loans to rural communities will be halted.

  • Hundreds of thousands of Federal employees including many charged with protecting us from terrorist threats, defending our borders, inspecting our food, and keeping our skies safe will work without pay until the shutdown  ends.

  • Hundreds of thousands of additional federal workers will be immediately and indefinitely furloughed without pay.
