(Salt Lake City-AP) -- House Majority Leader Greg Curtis says he's sorry.

Curtis apologized yesterday for taking state mileage reimbursements even though the county was already paying for the gas on his county-issued vehicle.

He says he had been filling out reimbursement forms for nine years, and when he received his county-issued S-U-V last June, he kept filling them out as a habit.

Curtis paid the county back the 767 dollars earlier this month.

He's the latest official under fire in the controversy surrounding county officials and their use of county-owned vehicles.

The scandal prompted two top-ranking officials to resign, including County Auditor Craig Sorenson, who could face criminal charges.
