SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The lieutenant governor would be allowed to perform wedding ceremonies under a bill approved by the Utah House.
Under House Bill 310, the lieutenant governor would join a long list of government and religious leaders who are already able to marry people, including the governor, mayors, judges, county clerks, the Senate president and the House speaker.
The bill passed in the House on Monday 68-6. It will now be debated in the Senate.
