Economic Research Institute Study paper
Utah State University
In January 1992, Utah State University undertook a study of the potential localized economic impacts of land designated as wilderness. The original proposal for $3 10,000 over five years was scaled back to $210,000 over three years due to the absence of funds. The primary source of funds for the study was from Utah State University's portion of mineral lease funds, but other contributors included the Department of Community and Economic Development, the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station, the Utah Extension Service, and the Department of Economics (Colleges of Agriculture and Business) at Utah State University.
