Posted: Updated:
Burke County, GA -

The partial government shutdown is about to affect the people who keep an eye on the nation's 100 commercial nuclear power plants, including Plant Vogtle in Burke County.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission expects to furlough 3,900 employees at the close of business on Thursday if no deal is struck between the President and Congress.

Only 300 essential personnel will stay on the clock.
