How Government Shutdown Could Affect Entertainment

Variety: If the federal government shuts down after midnight Monday, TV and radio stations will see the process for pending license approvals ground to a halt, national parks will stop issuing film permits and a smattering of upcoming congressional hearings will be postponed or cancelled.
