Lawmakers gave final approval Tuesday to a bill to clamp down on the consulting work that state officials do spurred by a side deal that new Attorney General John Swallow engaged in when he was a top deputy in the office.
SB83, sponsored by Sen. Todd Weiler, R-Woods Cross, would require the Governor's Office, attorney general, auditor and treasurer to implement policies that require the top appointees in the office to abide by the same rules as other office staff.
The House passed it 70-1 on Tuesday, then the Senate voted 26-0 to pass amendments added by the House. The bill now goes to Gov. Gary Herbert for his signature.
