I was confused learning that Doug Owens, founder of the nonprofit Outdoor Partners, teamed up with Mia Love to extol the economic virtues of outdoor recreation in Utah. According to the report released by Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute, recreation is a big draw for business considering locating in Utah. Now, Love says she is all for this, it being nice to have hard data. Outdoor Retailer's move to Colorado, costing the state millions, was data she cared nothing about. She doesn't want to talk about the actual land use policies driven by her political allegiance. It is much... [Read More]
