SALT LAKE CITY -- Members of a gay and lesbian advocacy group want to meet with Gov. Gary Herbert.

The Foundation for Reconciliation tells the Deseret News it hopes to meet with the newly-appointed governor to share stories of discrimination and ask for a task force to investigate discrimination cases.

The meeting request comes after Herbert said he doesn't believe gay and lesbian Utahns need legal protection against discrimination.

The governor's spokeswoman, Angie Welling, says Herbert would be "more than happy" to meet with the group and says the office is looking into scheduling a time to do so.
