(KSL News) Utah's lawmakers had agreed to give local governments $2.7 million to aid in the ongoing battle against DUI offenses.

That decision was handed down during yesterday's Special Legislative Session.

Most of the items on the agenda, were technical changes to laws passed earlier this year.

They decided NOT to discuss an education bill because it involves the hotly debated competency- based education changes.

Lawmakers feel that's a topic better suited for the general session.

The legislators did ask for an independent review of the Utah Department of Environmental Quality to better understand how state regulators decide what kinds of waste should be allowed into Utah.
