SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah lawmakers have authorized the state to spend another $7,000,000 to keep Utah's national parks open through December 1 after the sites were temporarily shuttered due to a partial shutdown of the federal government.

Congress appeared to be closing in on a deal late Wednesday to reopen the government.
