How a partial government shutdown would impact Coloradans
DENVER -- With the Democrats and President Trump at odds over spending, and in particular funding for border security, a partial government shutdown may occur starting at 10 p.m. MST Friday. But what would a partial federal government shut down mean for people living in Colorado? When we called the National Park Service‘s Lakewood office, this is what we heard: "You’ve reached a non-working number for the National Park Service, please check the number and try again." Perhaps a sign of things to come if the government shuts down. National parks would, in fact, remain open to public access, even free of charge. Just don’t expect the visitor center to be open, public restrooms, or even plowed roads.
