The Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which monitors the nation's 100 commercial nuclear power plants, is set to furlough 3,600 employees on Thursday after depleting funds amid the government shutdown.

"Despite our best hopes, the NRC on Thursday will be joining the rest of the federal government in shutting down due to a lapse in appropriations," NRC Chairman Allison Macfarlane said on the agency's blog. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/09/nuclear-regulatory-commission-furlough_n_4074078.html
