SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah Gov. Gary Herbert isn't going to call a special session to redraw a disputed legislative district.

Republican Rep. Craig Frank of Cedar Hills was disqualified from his seat because he lives outside his district.

Frank was re-elected to represent House District 57 in November. He says the electoral process was legal despite a clerk's error on the Utah County boundary maps.

Herbert spokeswoman Ally Isom told reporters Saturday that Herbert believes a process is already in place to resolve the issue.

Frank plans to force a vote over seating him when the Legislature convenes Jan. 24.
