OR Leaving Utah, Governor Herbert Offended

Posted on February 22 2017

OR16_logo_final2By now you’ve probably heard the news that the Outdoor Retailer show has officially announced it is leaving Utah. That will bring to an end a lengthy relationship that by many accounts pumps $40 million every year into the Utah economy. Utah Governor Gary Herbert said he found the decision “offensive.”

Please read this editorial.   It summarizes in a fair and professional manner how the economic dots are indeed very much connected.

We’ll all have to see what the future holds.  Will this make a difference in Utahans’ attitudes toward public land policy and their elected officials?  Maybe not.  But I can assure you that there are other states lining up for an opportunity to put their best outdoors foot forward.

Kudos to OR.
