SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah House Speaker Dave Clark is extending a deadline for lawmakers to submit ideas on how to improve government to better the lives of the state's residents.
On the first day of the 2009 legislative session that ended in March, Clark gave all 75 members of the Utah House 100-page blank notebooks that he said he wanted them to fill with 100 innovative ideas.
The deadline was Friday, the state's Pioneer Day holiday.
Clark says he's now giving lawmakers another few weeks, and expects to collect the notebooks on Aug. 19.
The public can also submit ideas by sending an email to email@example.com.
