Plan To Keep The Grand Canyon Open Rejected

10.04.13 | Bob Price

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has a plan to keep the Grand Canyon open during the government shutdown but the federal government is refusing to go along.  Brewer wants the state's signature national park re-opened and has even offered to pay for it with state money, but her proposal was rejected Thursday by a park official who said that as long as the federal government remains shut down, such a plan is not an option.  2,200 people who work at the Grand Canyon National Park and its hotels have been furloughed. Many of those businesses also have offered to chip in to pay to reopen the park.
