Grand Canyon to reopen Saturday under deal between Brewer and Interior Department (access required)

The Grand Canyon will reopen Saturday under a deal struck by Gov. Jan Brewer with the U.S. Department of Interior. After huddling with department officials on a conference call Friday afternoon, Brewer announced the national park would be reopened in full on Saturday. The state will pay $651,000, or under $93,000 per day, to fund the park’s operations for at least the next week, using a mix of state dollars and other monies, some pledged by Tusayan Mayor Greg Bryan, where businesses have struggled with the lack of tourism business at the Canyon.
