Greg Neft ReportingUtah's Lt. Governor says there's going to be some financial juggling to pay for the school voucher referendum.

The referendum is providing for some special challenges. Lt. Governor Gary Herbert says, "Doing a special election was not budgeted for; we now have to come up with the money."

Herbert says there's a simple answer, though. He says, "My office has money that has been budgeted for the Western States Presidential Primary. We're going to use that money."

So how will Utah take part in the primary? Herbert says, "With the hope and understanding that the legislature will replenish our coffers, in the legislative session of 2008."

Herbert says his office budget will take a hit, but he's confident the legislature will come through.
