Shutdown over: What next?
Tourists Angry At Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Tourist from around the world that make the trek to the Big Island of Hawaii to see an active volcano were greeted by a closure of the national park. Many international tourists expressed outrage at our governments inability to communicate and run our country. Many of these people have stated that this once in a lifetime trip was ruined by the government shutdown. This is not good for a state like Hawaii that is extremely dependant upon tourism dollars to support the economy.
