Utah has a state flower, a state fossil, a state tree and a state bird, among a host of other things.
So what should the Utah state rock be? Maybe sandstone? Nevada already claimed that one. Granite? New Hampshire has that one.Rep. Mike Dmitrich, D-Price, thinks it ought to be coal, and fellow representatives agreed by a 61-8 margin. Dmitrich, an executive for a coal company, jokingly offered free mine tours to the 61 lawmakers who voted in favor of his bill.
The bill was the result of a class project by a Carbon County school.
