National Parks in Some States Opening Despite Government Shutdown

Despite the government shutdown and the fact that National Parks around the country have also shut down, some states have found a way reopen their National Parks. ‘Use state money to keep them open’. Utah’s governor got permission from the Department of the Interior to open his state’s eight National Parks under the condition the state pay for the cost needed to operate them.

October is an especially profitable month for National Parks and they have an impact on businesses in the area, so the closure would have an impact on Utah’s economy. Other states are following suit, New York will reopen the Statue of Liberty and Arizona will reopen the Grand Canyon using the same method of the states paying for operation costs.

It seems the deal for states to take over operation is for 10 days with the hope the government shutdown will be over by then.
