Hawaii unlikely to reopen shuttered national parks

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii is unlikely to reopen national parks in the islands during the federal government shutdown because it appears the state wouldn't be reimbursed for doing so.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie spokeswoman Louise Kim McCoy said Friday reimbursement isn't the only factor the state needs to consider but it's a huge one.

Abercrombie said in a statement that Congress and the federal government shouldn't expect Hawaii or any other state to substitute for the federal government or assume its obligations.

The Obama administration said Thursday it will allow some national parks to reopen as long as states use their own money to pay for park operations.

Utah plans to reopen five national parks for 10 days after sending $1.65 million to the U.S. government.
