SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- There are two new members in the Utah House.

New Rep. Bill Wright is taking the place of former Rep. Brad Winn, an Ephraim Republican.

Wright, a dairyman, is a former House and Senate member who served during the 1990s representing southern Utah County. Winn resigned after being hired by Utah State University.

New Rep. Johnny Anderson is replacing former Rep. Kory Holdaway, a Taylorsville Republican. Holdaway resigned to become government affairs director of the Utah Education Association.

Both new members took their seats Monday.

They were picked by GOP delegates in their districts. Both face re-election in 2010 along with all other House members.
