Salt Lake City - Governor Jon Huntsman endorsed today a redistricting map for the possibility of a 4th Congressional District, encouraging bipartisan support for the Congressional measure that would give Utah an additional House seat.
Governor Huntsman, Utah Senate President John Valentine and Speaker of the House Greg Curtis have all agreed on a redistricting map to include the 4th district in an effort to get back support for HR 5388.
"It is imperative that we come together and do what is best for Utah. Clearly, it is in our best interest to gain a much needed and deserved 4th seat," Governor Huntsman said. "This map is consistent with my pledge of fairness made last week to the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives."
