Some of Cincinnati's elected leaders are calling on national lawmakers to end the partial shutdown of the federal government.
Mayor Mark Mallory said leaders need to end the conflict. He said there are many examples of how the impasse is hurting the state's economy.
Mallory said 7,500 people visit national parks in Ohio every day.
“So we’re in day 10 of this shutdown, 75,000 people have been turned away so far from national parks in the state of Ohio,” Mallory said. “Resulting in a loss to our state economy of more than $2 million.”
