Whoa,

What will become of the Moraine View SP Midwest rally that occurs every year?

This does suck.

End of the season camping season... no immediate effect on citizenry... political jostling... putting pressure on the house speaker.

Our gov closed all roadside stops and state parks (preseason of course) a couple years ago in some legislative brinkmanship. My gosh, was that unpopular!! Stay tuned til spring when people want to camp again. Hope they say, "Backstroke!"

But a casino on the SOB side of the campground just might free up the necessary dollars.

Have the cuts extended to the Gov cutting out his daily flights to the capitol from Chicago during the legislative season? I suspect not.

Hi everyone, it's been a while. Seen the news on the Montana forums about the closings and that sure does stink! I know I really enjoyed the two visits when we were at the Moraine View State Park. I hope something can be worked out to keep them open.

Like this perhaps? Obama Senate Seat For Sale? - December 9, 2008 Maybe former Gov Ryan saved him a bunk
