SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- State lawmakers made a slew of technical budget corrections during a special legislative session.

Lawmakers addressed 15 issues on Wednesday, including adjusting Medicaid hospital provider rates. Lawmakers shifted about $6.5 million from the budget so hospitals would get larger Medicaid reimbursements.

Legislators also modified the Employment Selection Procedures Act to clarify what information an employer may request from a prospective employee. Lawmakers also approved allowing owners of agricultural land in rural areas to create subdivisions regardless of local ordinances.

Only the governor can place items on the agenda for a special session.

The next scheduled legislative session is in January.
