In the event of a government shutdown, you can use the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine. On this site, you can enter the address of a government website (epa.gov; dol.gov; hhs.gov; etc), then choose a recent date the site was archived on. TIP: choose the most recent date with the largest circle. This will show you the site as it was on that day. Keep in mind that search boxes, video content, and databases within the site will probably not work.
