The National Park Service’s closure of the World War II and other memorials violates rules requiring them to stay open, 94 House members charge in a letter to the agency.

Led by Michigan Republican Rep. Bill Huizenga, they claim that Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis is simply making up closure rules to punish the public during the government shutdown and they question the costs of the random closures in Washington where not all memorials are being closed.

“The National Park Service continues to act in an arbitrary and punitive manner to exclude veterans from memorials built in their honor and the American people from many of our country’s national treasures. I have serious questions about the tactics and decisions being implemented by the National Park Service and clearly many of my colleagues do as well,” said Huizenga.
