The Outdoor Industry Association (businesses making a living
off the great outdoors) has launched a 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.
