The Government of Utah will ensure that three of the state's five national parks remain open during the closing of the federal government over a budget dispute between President Donald Trump and the Congress to fund a border wall with basic visitor services.
Utah Office Vicki Varela, Managing Director of Tourism, said Thursday she funded the state's best-known national parks, Zion, Arches and Bryce Canyon, during a call to the National Parks Service Supervisors and completed the details on Friday. Governor Gary Herbert has authorized a total of $ 80,000 to finance the three parks for the rest of the year, Varela said.
States that decide to grant funds for the operation of the parks are not reimbursed, the National Parks Service said.
Varela said she was proud that Herbert had allocated funds to the parks because it was important for people to be able to enter and enjoy the parks.
"Many people have organized trips with their families traveling to Cyprus from around the world. Experience the parks, and we just want to make sure they have the planned experience," Varela said.
