With funding being provided in grants from the Highway Trust Fund, and state agencies, these safety programs that appear in the form of roadside trucking enforcement, weigh stations and inspection stations will not be affected by the shutdown.  However, there are agencies that conduct business in tandem with the trucking industry that are impacted by the impasse that is seen in Washington, D.C. this week; most notably the Federal Railroad Administration and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. The effect that this halt in production has on the shipping and logistics firms of the country has yet to be seen due to the shutdown still being in its infancy.

Americans have numerous questions regarding the 2013 Government Shutdown. USA Today is a great reference and has provided access to a slew of questions and answers regarding the 2013 Shutdown.  CNN also provides a list of agencies being affected by the shutdown and to what degree.
