Default Petition on Accountability of Proceeds from Sale a Public Resourse

Attention both Utah residents and nonresidents:
If you are against giving away your public land big game tags to a private organization (SFW) who peddles them off but refuses to disclose how 2.5 million $ of the proceeds are spent……………………please sign the petition at the link below ASAP. Utah’s back door politics buddy buddy system has gone out of control. This is about lack of accountability involving the sale of a public resource. No brainer.

A grossly disproportionate % of these 200 trophy tags were stolen from the nonresident quota to begin with! I don’t know how anyone could not sign this petition except SFW employees!

Signed.

This is important guys. SFW has gotten Utah to give them these convention tags with little accountability as how much of this money is spent on conservation.

Many of the same people have tried to do the same thing in Arizona and other states. We need to make our state legislators take notice and make sure all organization that receive tags from the state are accountable.

Signed it the day it came out. It's just as important for nonresidents of Utah to sign it because the SFW is using money from the Utah group to try and spread throughout the western states and get these types of things going in them too.

Non-profits are required to file a 990 tax form with the IRS, which are public. Some are more detailed than others. This is not the same as opening their books to the public. Most non-profits do this voluntarily, but are not required by law to do so. SFW will not open their books and have said they will not. SFW receives tags for a small amount and sells them to the highest bidder without any control as to how, where and how much of money is spent.
