SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Gov. Gary Herbert's administration is taking inventory on gifts that are given to the state's highest elected official.

Spokeswoman Angie Welling says the gifts are usually of nominal value, but Herbert's office wants to keep a thorough log of who is giving what to the governor.

Records provided to The Salt Lake Tribune list more than 200 odds and ends that were given to former Gov. Jon Huntsman, but the records skipped most of 2007 and all of 2008. Huntsman issued an executive order during his first term that any gifts to the governor's office become property of the state.

Welling says Herbert wants a list available to the public itemizing each gift.
