SALT LAKE CITY — A resolution urging Congress to exempt wolves from the endangered species act has been approved by the state Legislature.

SCR15 passed the House 60-8 on Wednesday and now goes to Gov. Gary Herbert for his action.

The resolution, presented with a wolf-like howl on the House floor by Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab, states that wolves are no longer endangered and threaten rural economies.
