Utah Special Session Adjourns
Yesterday, the Utah Legislature adjourned its one-day special session sine die.
The session had been called by Governor Gary R. Herbert to clarify issues concerning the newly created House committee investigating Attorney General John Swallow. Swallow has been accused of several ethics violations and is currently being investigated by the FBI.
The House appointed nine members to the committee. The Legislature passed several measures relating to the investigation, included a bill granting the committee subpoena power.
