Any shutdown under Trump would "look very different," he said. All 1.3 million military personnel on active duty would remain on normal duty status.
JUSTICE: The Justice Department has many essential workers.
Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Elk Grove, announced on Friday that the park would be open regardless of the looming shutdown.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team investigating whether Trump's 2016 presidential campaign colluded with Russian Federation will also continue to work.
The National Park Service said it would close some areas either to preserve the park (such as a trail open to visitors only by ranger-guided tour) or for safety (such as a skiing trail that rangers normally monitor for avalanche risk). Other federal employees are furloughed. But by mid-day Saturday, the pattern was spotty.
As the 2013 shutdown dragged on, Republicans accused then-President Barack Obama of turning away park visitors out of "spite", while the Democratic administration criticized Republicans for the shutdown and said it was following the law. And the park services concedes that "services that require staffing and maintenance such as campgrounds, full service restrooms, and concessions that require some Park staff or assistance will not be operating". Some lodging, restaurants, and other services may be available when provided by concessioners or other entities.
The Trump administration's plan has drawn criticism as being focused on appearances rather than the shutdown's actual impact. Outhouses (typically in the back country) will remain open. Other parks like Death Valley and Everglades are in peak season.
Mail service was unaffected, as the U.S. Postal Service has its own revenue source. Swartout estimates that 36 of Rainier's 110 winter employees are working during the shutdown.
Airports: Security checkpoints are staffed, and air traffic controllers are on the job.
"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said negotiations kept going late into the night, with a vote to break a Democratic filibuster on a short-term funding bill scheduled for noon Monday".

According to an Associated Press report, state labs would continue the work of monitoring the flu and do testing that is sent on to the CDC.
All veteran's disability application reviews were put on hold.
LOANS: The processing of loans in some cases could be impacted.
Special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation team will continue to operate, a Justice Department spokesperson told CNN. It expects to make timely payments of principle and interest to investors. For other civilian government employees, they will likely be furloughed until the government returns.
The Department of Veterans Affairs has a special line of funding that will keep all of its hospitals open and nearly all of its medical employees on duty.
VA hospitals and food inspections will continue.
Meanwhile, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser called a news conference from the National Mall Friday morning to assure residents the District government would remain open and continue to provide uninterrupted service no matter what happens on Capitol Hill.
