Three US parks reopen

One casualty of the U.S. government shutdown has been revived- sort of. Three of the most iconic national parks in the U.S. will be reopened in the coming days after deals were reached between state and federal officials. Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, the Statue of Liberty in New York, and Arizona's Grand Canyon will all reopen between Saturday and Monday. Governors in those states are paying a hefty price to the National Park Service for the chance to reopen -South Dakota will pay more than 15 thousand per day. New York will pay more than 61 thousand per day. And in Arizona, the Grand Canyon will reopen for seven days at a cost of 93 thousand dollars per day. Officials estimate the national parks have lost about $750 million dollars in visitor spending since the shutdown began. Of the country's 401 National Park Service, only these three will open. The others will remain closed
