The National Park Service says it has no time frame for reopening the Washington Monument.
Mr. Lorenzetti did warn, however, that in an effort to keep open the major memorials and sites and avoid furloughs as much as possible, future events the Park Service sponsors -- such as the July 4 celebration on the Mall -- could take a hit.
