Some in Hawaii still feeling impact of shutdown
The government shutdown may almost be over, but some in Hawaii are still feeling the impact.
HONOLULU - The government shutdown may almost be over, but some in Hawaii are still feeling the impact.
Visitors to Hawaii's national parks were either limited access or turned away this weekend. Haleakala National Park on Maui posted to its Facebook page that the park will not fully reopen until formal notice from their national office.
And the same goes for Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Besides the national parks, Hawaii has a large population of federal employees affected by the shutdown.
In previous shutdowns, those employees on furlough were eventually paid after an agreement was reached in Washington D.C.
