PA Declines Feds' Offer to Fund National Park Re-Openings
Governor Corbett's office says it doesn't have the money to reopen national parks as it uses the little free cash it has to keep social services programs running amid a partial federal government shutdown.
A spokesman was responding to the Obama administration saying today it'll allow states to use their own money to reopen some national parks.
Jay Pagni says the administration's goal amid the protracted federal shutdown is to maintain vital services for children and families. He says the Corbett administration recognizes tourism brings money into local economies.
But, he says the state doesn't have the cash to reopen parks while it puts off payments to social services providers and backfills missing federal dollars to keep programs running.
