Sequester won’t affect Mono Lake, Bodie


The sequester will not affect operations at either Mono Lake or Bodie State Park, according to officials.

“This is one time I’m glad to be connected to the state park system,” said Mono Lake Ranger Dave Marquart. Mono Lake faced budget cuts last year when California was in deficit and the park had to implement a new fee system to adjust.

The final effects of the sequester on federal lands, including Yosemite National Park and the Inyo National Forest, are still unknown. Calls to both agencies for information were not returned before press time.
