NP supporters laud end of government shutdown, call on lawmakers to never let it happen again

Word Friday that the partial government shutdown would be lifted for three weeks, if not longer, was welcomed by groups concerned about the state of the National Park System. But they also called on Congress to ensure a similar event never happens again.

As the plan came together Friday afternoon, the temporary lifting of the shutdown would run to February 15. At that date, if no long-term agreement for funding the government and addressing border security wasn't reached, President Trump said he might shutter the government once again.
