(KSL News) The number of people applying for passports has gone through the roof in Davis County.
The County Clerk says the number of applications has gone up 82 percent from the same time last year. The county plans to hire temporary employees in order to help with all the extra work.
Part of the reason for the increase is the change in immigration law requiring a passport to travel anywhere outside the country -- including Mexico.
