(KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The government hasn't shut down in over 17 years, but if an agreement isn't made by midnight, here's a list of things that may or may not be affected.
The military would continue to operate, but there may be a delay in pay for those in uniform. Air traffic controllers, the Federal Reserve, the FBI and federal courts will operate normally for a time.
If the shutdown lasts longer than two weeks, the courts could run out of reserve funds. The postal service would not be affected. Most Homeland Security options will continue, but not the Food and Drug Administration. About 6,600 FDA employees could be furloughed. HUD would largely shut down, and the Department of Interior, which would affect national parks and national museums, would also close.
It doesn't stop there: the departments of labor, energy, commerce and the EPA are expected to close if the clock strikes midnight and there's still no deal.
