I can't believe they'd consider closing historic sites. Can't they find some alternative, like closing a few days a week, or raising prices? I don't understand the governor's priorities...

The Gov's priorities is to First Close down the Parks. Second; SELL this Land to His PALS. Third; Put RICH Resorts on this Land. The Gov is from Philly. No more said.

I think that his plan is to turn the state parks into gambling casinos. Ka-ching! I didn't vote for him as I do not support gambling at all, in any way, shape or form. As for PA's historical sights & museums, the good ole' boys obviously only care about themselves. They don't care about preserving history.
