The so-called sequestration in Washington, D.C. made across the board cuts in many services because the two parties could not agree on a budget plan. Mono Supervisor Tim Alpers said that policy cut $2.4 million out of the Yosemite National Park Budget. As a result, Yosemite officials said they would not start clearing Tioga Pass from their end until May 15th. Alpers has asked the Park Superintendent for Mono County to get going from the East entrance to preserve the hope of opening the all-important pass for Memorial Day.

Get 'er done. The small local communities around Yosemite can use a break. It's been a bad couple of years.

Maybe sequester funds that hurt business in downtown D.C.

Shoe on the other foot.

Lassen started plowing early, Yosemite is going for a melt-out. Did each park have to decide independently how they were going to implement this ridiculous sequester?
