Utah Committee Assignments, 2013


National Park management during shutdown

In the wake of the October 2013 federal government shutdown, Lifferth expressed concern about the lack of tourism revenue from the closed National Parks in the state. Lifferth drafted legislation that would have called on the federal government to hand over control of the National Parks to the state government if the federal government shutdown lasted more than 30 days. Lifferth did not initially have an estimate as to the cost to the state of taking over control of the parks, and the legislature would have had to be called in for a special session to pass the legislation before January 2014.[1]
