"The Washington, D.C.-based Campaign for Accountability on Thursday called on the co-chairs of Utah’s Commission for the Stewardship of Public Lands to produce a full review of expenditures and accused the commission of allowing the $2 million set aside for the project to become 'a slush fund.' The group said its numerous public records requests have been denied."

More than a quarter of those funded directly by Google didn’t disclose the source of their money, according to the report."
