Utah initiatives fail to make it onto ballot

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A pair of initiatives intended to create independent ethics and redistricting commissions won't appear on the ballot this fall.
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A pair of initiatives intended to create independent ethics and redistricting commissions won't appear on the ballot this fall.

The lieutenant governor's office said Tuesday that neither initiative gathered the required number of signatures to be placed before voters.

Under Utah law, sponsors have to get signatures from 10 percent of those who voted in the last gubernatorial election in 26 of the state's 29 Senate districts. Sponsors also need a total of about 95,000 signatures.

The lieutenant governor's office says neither petition met either standard.
