Shutdown Status: States Pay To Reopen Some National Parks
The status as of today:
Arizona: It's costing $651,000 to open the Grand Canyon for a week, though no money is allotted past that time and some local businesses worry it won't help them in the long run.
Colorado: Over 10,000 visitors went out the Rocky Mountain National Park this weekend after the state reached an agreement to pay over $40,000 per day to keep it open.
New York: The Statue of Liberty re-opened yesterday, costing New York $61,000 per day out of its tourism budget -- but visitors generate an estimated $350,000 daily.
South Dakota: Mount Rushmore will cost over $15,000 a day to reopen, with corporate donors helping the state open the park again today.
Utah: 8 attractions will reopen today, including Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park, at a cost of $166,000 per day.
