Federal shutdown staring to ripple through states
A concerned Julie Aldaz, left, general manager of the Red Feather Lodge, who has already had to layoff three employees, talks with Jane Gibson, housekeeping manager, about the dim prospects of Grand Canyon National Park reopening, as the park remains closed to visitors due to the continued federal government shutdown on Friday Oct. 11, 2013, in Tusayan, Ariz. Attempts by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer to have the U.S. Department of the Interior open up portions of the park using state funds has hit a snag. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin)
