The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration would not be affected by a shutdown of the federal government.

According to officials with the United States Department of Transportation, all Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration positions are funded by multi-year appropriations, indefinite appropriations, or contract authority, including the federal gas tax. Officials also said FMCSA has sufficient balances of liquidating cash to operate for a limited period during a lapse in annual appropriations.

The Federal Highway Administration is also exempt from furloughs, the agency said. If the balance of annual appropriations is not sufficient, however, an agency shutdown plan might need to be implemented.
