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.
