SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah recorded fewer out-of-wedlock births and abortions, bringing it a 25 million dollar bonus from the U-S Department of Health and Human Services.

This was the first time Utah has won the bonus since it became available with enactment of the 1996 welfare reform law.

New York and the District of Columbia also received 25 million dollars awards and are repeat winners.

The money goes to Utah's Department of Workforce Services to be used for the federal welfare program, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.
