WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Gov. Gary Herbert is considering bringing back a physical Utah presence to the nation's capital.
He tells the Salt Lake Tribune there seems to be a lot of support for opening a Utah office in the Capitol building to lobby for the state's interests.
In 1980 Gov. Scott Matheson opened an office in the Hall of States, but more than 25 years later, Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. closed it, saying he could handle much of the lobbying efforts himself.
Herbert is also considering contracting an outside firm to do the job.
