(KSL News) Governor Leavitt's moving one step closer to being named the head of the Environmental Protection Agency. Senate Democrats plan to end a boycott on his nomination today.
They were blocking Leavitt's nomination as a way to demand resolution from the White House and the E-P-A over air pollution issues.
They say "out of respect" to the governor they will allow his nomination to proceed out of the committe.
But, it still has to clear the full Senate -- and at least five Democrats say they plan to block a vote on the Senate floor.
