UTAH UNDER THE GUN FROM OUTDOOR INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION
Outdoor Industry Association (businesses making a living off the great outdoors) launches massive attack on Utah for more land restrictions, this time in the form of a new Monument Proposal that 100 businesses signed onto and sent to President Obama. I don’t think anyone asked Utah what they thought….???
Some companies that are in the forefront of closing lands seem to include: Teva, CamelBak, Moab Coffee Roasters, North Face, New Belgium Brewing, and more. I’m really surprised that REI did not sign on as they are usually in the lead for more Wilderness and motorized restrictions.
BlueRibbon Coalition is all over helping to shut down this massive attack on Utah, and the Monument proposed by the Outdoor Industry Association. Here is a very thorough staff analysis and some background.
