The Boy Scouts of America want to use their new facility in Fayette County to host a number of events, but they can't do so without losing their tax-exempt status.

They are now lobbying to change this rule and our lawmakers should put this on the ballot.  Anyone who knows anything about the The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve knows that it's going to be a game changer, why not give them an opportunity to maximize their investment in every way?

This is the kind of economic development most states dream about, let's show the boy scouts we are on their side.
