National parks could reopen if states put up money
Some national parks may reopen if states decide to put up the cash.
The U.S. Department of the Interior said Thursday it will consider working with governors who have offered to use state funds to open the parks.
All 401 national parks have been closed as a result of the partial government shutdown, including the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor.
Two House committees are scheduled to hold a joint hearing next week questioning the necessity of closing national parks and monuments during the shutdown.
