SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Organizers of a failed attempt to force a statewide vote on public funding for Real Salt Lake's new stadium may turn to Governor Huntsman.

Critics were about 80,000 signatures short of the number needed to get the issue on the ballot.

The Legislature gave $35 million in Salt Lake County hotel taxes to pay for part of the stadium project in Sandy.

A spokesman for Get Real Utah says the group wants to ask Huntsman why it was O-K for the state to spend county tax money. The group also may question Utah's referendum law.

Construction is under way at the stadium site in Sandy.
