Major outdoor retailers boycott Utah over threats to sell off public lands

Chaffetz withdrew a recent legislative proposal because of public outrage, but it seems like he just can't get let go. So, say goodby to a trade show, Utah.

After 20 years of hosting the bi-annual outdoor retailer show in Salt Lake City, organizers of the show finalized their decision to move the $45 million event after a “disappointing” call Thursday with Utah Gov. Gary Herbert (R).
A spokesman for Herbert said OIA’s move perpetuated a “false narrative” about Utah, despite the fact that the governor has been pouring $4.5 million of Utah taxpayer dollars into a lawsuit to seize national public lands in the state each year; an effort that is opposed by Utah residents, and has very little chance of success.
