(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Utah legislators are wondering if the merger of Wendovers -- the Utah/Nevada border towns -- will short Utah somehow.

It's the same question Nevada legislators are asking. They're willing to annex Wendover, Utah, only if it comes free and clear of debt for schools and an airport.

Wendover is the poor cousin to Nevada's casino-rich West Wendover.

University of Utah's Center for Public Policy andAdministration director David Patton laid out the trade-offs yesterday for Utah legislators.

Patton says some headway is being made in negotiations.
