  1. Parks are always the first at play with this budget tripe. Funny thing is park revenue goes Into the general fund. Then they receive an operating budget which is less money than they generate. Welcome to government

    • It is so wrong. If they can exempt other things from the shut downs, our dang public lands and the staff to support them should be on that list. I do not believe in government shutdowns. I don’t agree at all requiring anyone to work for no pay. That is slavery and against the basic rights that should be accorded to all people. But we require some things to stay open and funded due to the repercussions of their work or oversight not being done. The parks should be no different. The administration has so far shown more concern for the business that are around the parks that are hurt from a lack of business than they are for the conditions of the parks themselves. People have died because of this shut down, and it is not only going to get worse, but it will take a generation or longer to fix the damage. I anger some people because I am an environmentalist and I believe we need to put the effort in to saving the planet and the species that live on it. Afterall we are one of those species. It is self interest to keep the place clean and healthy. Hugs
