SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. has told legislative leaders he expects this month's special session to take two days.

Huntsman told them Thursday that he is planning to start the session on April 19 and extend it into the next day, said Michael Mower, the governor's legislative liaison.

The session's main purpose is to deal with the federal No Child Left Behind law.

Huntsman, Senate President John Valentine and House Speaker Greg Curtis also whittled down the potential list of bills for the session's agenda, Mower said, but he declined to give specifics.

The governor has said he wants to keep the focus on NCLB and add only legislation that is not controversial.
