(KSL News) -- Utah Governor-elect Jon Huntsman Junior says he wants to use some of his political connections to pay for improvements to the state's public school system.

Huntsman is a former diplomat under both Bush administrations and was an aide to Ronald Reagan. Now he plans to call in a few markers at the federal level to change federal education policy and to raise reimbursement rates for untaxed public land.

Huntsman says those are his two priorities when it comes to Congress.
