National parks and forests across the country closed after lawmakers could not come to a resolution over a spending bill.
Those that live and work near the Boone Forest say this will really hurt the local economy which relies on the campers and fishers that come to the park in the Fall.
However some say they understand that lawmakers are just trying to stick to their principles, and say they don’t mind the shutdown, as long as leaders in Washington eventually come to an agreement.
Forest rangers were not the only ones who had the day off Tuesday.
The Kentucky National Guard says that of the 86-hundred men and women in the Guard, ten percent of them were furloughed as well.
