Channel 4 news van was at the Gate - they did a spot on State Parks and the budget. The Feds gave the State the land for the parks with an agreement on running them and keeping them open so if the State tries to sell or close the parks the Feds will reposess them. Not sure how all that would play out but it seems like the Feds have the bigger hammer.
