SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- House Speaker Dave Clark is urging his colleagues and Utahns to continue submitting ideas about how to improve state government to better the lives of the state's residents.

On the first day of the legislative session, which ended Thursday, Clark gave all 75 members of the Utah House 100-page blank notebooks that he said he wanted them to fill with 100 innovative ideas.

He also created an e-mail address -- utahmatters@utah.gov -- that he wants the public to use to submit their ideas, which he says should be relevant to the day-to-day lives of average people.

Clark says hundreds of suggestions have already been e-mailed in, but he'd like to see thousands.

Clark has set a deadline of July 24, Pioneer Day, for lawmakers and the public to submit their ideas.
