SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- State Sen. Greg Bell's confirmation as Utah's lieutenant governor has been set for Sept. 1.

Gov. Gary Herbert on Thursday called the state Senate into a special session for the confirmation.

Lawmakers had planned to confirm Bell during an already planned interim session on Wednesday, but legislative staff say Bell, a Republican from Fruit Heights, will be out of town that day.

Calling the Senate into the special session will cost about $7,500. No other items are on the agenda for the session.

Herbert had been serving as lieutenant governor until Tuesday, when Gov. Jon Huntsman resigned to become U.S. ambassador to China.
