SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah legislator is stepping down.

State House officials announced Friday that Rep. Ken Ivory will resign Monday because he has accepted a new job that will require his full time and attention.

Ivory is a Republican who was first elected in November 2020.

The House officials’ announcement of Ivory’s resignation said the Salt Lake County Republican Party will establish a process for choosing a replacement to be submitted to Gov. Herbert for appointment.
