SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- State Sen. Greg Bell's confirmation hearing as Utah's lieutenant governor is scheduled for this week.
Bell will appear before a Senate committee at the Capitol on Thursday. He's not expected to face any opposition to his appointment, and will be voted on by the full Senate on Sept. 1.
Lawmakers had planned to confirm Bell last week, but Bell was on a family cruise that had been planned for a long time. Bell was chosen to serve as Gov. Gary Herbert's lieutenant governor on Aug. 5.
