U.S. Offer Would Let Some States Open Parks

Week 6 Article #2

1. Lyman, Rick  U.S Offer Would Let Some States Open Parks October 10, 2013 New York Times 

2.Category of Problem: Government 

3. Level of Problem: National level

4. This article concerns: 
After more than a week of requests from several states that they be allowed to reopen parks closed by the federal government shutdown, considerations such agreements would take place as long as the states agreed to pay the full operating costs, including the salaries of all federal park employees.

5. This article affects individuals/families:
People need to go back to work and get on with their lives, so by the state parks re-opening it would allow those individuals to go back to work.
As the article states, “Because a number of communities around national parks, which depend on people visiting the parks, are already feeling the impacts of the shutdown.”

6. What are your views?
Governors of at least four states expressed interest to re-open national parks in their states, though it remained unclear whether any such deals could be reached soon. I believe state parks should be opened to allow visitors to visit and allow workers to go back to work.
The government shutting down has caused a lot of inconvenience because they are unable to keep up financially with their bills and support their families. Hopefully they will come to a census and re-open the government to allow workers to go back to work.
