SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Lieutenant Governor's Office says it will ask the Attorney General's Office to investigate an anonymous pro-voucher group that could be violating election laws.

Officials in Lt. Gov. Gary Herbert's office say they plan to file an investigation request with the Attorney General's Office today because the group hasn't filed a political issues committee report that's required under state law.

Joe Demma, spokesman for the Lieutenant Governor's Office, says that his office received and inquiry more than a month ago from an advertising agency that was doing work for an anonymous pro-voucher individual or group on a Web site and for radio ads.

Under state law it's a class B misdemeanor to miss the filing deadline.
