Though the state budget impasse continues into its eighth month and with warmer days around the corner, people will be going to state parks for recreation. Wayne Rosenthal, Director of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources told Regional Radio News, despite not being paid since last July, local vendors continue to work and support the IDNR.

Rosenthal encourages people to utilize the opportunity to go to any one of the state parks this year.  

Rosenthal has been the director of the IDNR since last January.
