"The FDA will continue “limited activities” in programs that are funded through industry user fees and will continue “select vital activities” such as handling high-risk recalls of tainted food or drugs. Officials said the FDA will be unable to keep up the majority of its food-safety, nutrition and cosmetics oversight.

The agency will have to cease routine inspections, monitoring of imports and “the majority of the laboratory research necessary to inform public health decision-making.”

The Weather Service Web pages are also shut down. "We, the people, need to take back the power from those who cannot make decisions for us."
