In this Thursday, Dec. 12, 2019 photo, a Boy Scouts troop salutes during their meeting, in Kaysville, Utah. For decades, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was one of Boy Scouts of America's greatest allies and the largest sponsor of troops. But on Jan. 1, the Utah-based faith will deliver the latest body blow to the struggling BSA when it implements its plan to pull out more than 400,000 youths and move them into a new global program of its own. This Latter-day Saint-based Boy Scouts troop in Kaysville, though, formed outside the church structure and plans to stick with the Boy Scouts after the church ends its longtime alliance at the end of 2019.

Our local Boy Scouts of America councils are reassuring the families of their members that they are continuing “business as usual.”

This comes in the wake of a national bankruptcy filing by the BSA.

The local councils say they are legally separate and financially independent from the national organization, and the filing has not impacted local operations or activities.

WSBT reports that all of the funding and revenue for the LaSalle Council is local, and stays local. The national organization has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in the wake of financial troubles brought about by lawsuits involving alleged abuse of scouts.
