(Washington-AP) -- President Bush will re-nominate US Attorney Paul Warner to a second term as Utah's top federal prosecutor.
The White House made the announcement today.
Warner has been the state's US attorney since July 1998.
Utah Senator Orrin Hatch says Warner as a commendable track record going after meth dealers and illegal immigrants and other law breakers.
Hatch says he'll work expedite Warner's nomination through his Judiciary Committee and the Senate.
Before becoming US attorney, Warner was chief criminal prosecutor for the office.
He served as an assistant Utah attorney general from 1982 to 1983.
He's keeping a second job as colonel in the Judge Advocate Branch of the Utah National Guard.
Warner earned his bachelor's, master's and law degrees from Brigham Young University.
