Gov. Gary Herbert has submitted the names of 24 people to serve on three of the state's environmental policy boards. The nominations await Senate confirmation.
Most would be returning from past service on the boards, which were disbanded over the past year under SB11 by Sen. Margaret Dayton, R-Orem. Under their new formats, the boards each have nine members, with Department of Environmental Quality Director Amanda Smith holding a position on each board.
On the Air Quality Board, the new members would be Karma M. Thomson, vice president of the Tesoro Salt Lake City refinery, and Tammie G. Lucero, executive director of the Uintah County Economic Development office.
