  ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York state and federal officials have reached an agreement to reopen the Statue of Liberty amid the government shutdown. 
 
      Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday the state will pay $61,600 a day to fund National Park Service personnel to reopen the popular visitors' destination in New York Harbor. 
 
      New York has 33 sites under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service, including the statue and nearby Ellis Island. They've been shut since Oct. 1 because of the partial federal shutdown. 
 
      Governors in at least four other states have asked for authority to reopen parks within their borders.
