GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) -- The National Park Service is reconsidering increased insurance requirements for whitewater boating outfitters in Dinosaur National Monument after complaints of possible national implications.

Companies are worried that a big jump in the liability insurance and other changes could sharply drive up their costs and possibly even make it impossible for them to stay in business.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports Colorado U.S. Sens. Michael Bennet and Mark Udall are taking up the issue in a letter to the Park Service on Monday.
