SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Several of Utah's most influential lawmakers are embarking on a taxpayer-funded trip to China this summer.

The trip is being billed as a trade mission similar to the delegation Governor Jon Huntsman led to the country last year. But at least one member of the group is calling on lawmakers to set specific expectations for the diplomatic trip.

Utah House majority leader David Clark will ask legislative leaders to set specific goals during meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The group of eight Republicans and four Democrats is scheduled to travel to an industrial province in China this July.

About $18,000 of state money has been set aside for the trip, but it could cost more.
