SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake Organizing Committee president Fraser Bullock says an overhaul to the U-S Olympic Committee will be based on advice from SLOC's 2002 Winter Games team.

Bullock and other advisers told U-S-O-C officials what worked and what didn't for the highly successful games.

Among the recommendations are a suggestion to cut the 125-member board of trustees to nine members. Bullock and former SLOC president Mitt Romney say that eliminating the extra positions will cut down on interference from trustees' special interests.

A task force also told the U-S-O-C it should increase the authority of the chief executive officer and reduce the number of board committees.

The U-S-O-C is expected to vote on the proposed changes later this year.

Several top officials have resigned from U-S-O-C recently, and the U-S Senate commerce committee is investigating the board.
