(SALT LAKE CITY, UT) – The states of Utah and Colorado have agreed to reopen national parks within their boundaries in spite of the government shutdown. The Obama administration is allowing most states to reopen parks, provided that they, rather than the federal government, foot the bill until Congress reaches a deal on the budget. States that move to fund national parks in the meantime won’t likely be compensated. Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead says his state will not subsidize a reopening of Yellowstone or Grand Teton national parks.
