The Utah Senate, meeting in special session Wednesday, confirmed the following appointments made by Gov. Norm Bangerter:
-Board of Pardons: Henry Haun appointed to replace Gary Webster. Haun's appointment was opposed by some state public safety employees because Haun is retiring from a federal government job to take the state job. He'll get his federal retirement and state salary. The Legislature passed a law that says state public safety employees can't retire from their state jobs and take other state jobs, a process known as double-dipping. The public safety employees don't think it's fair to allow some double-dipping and bar them from it.-N Control. Warren Harward and Paul Stringham reappointed and Robert Corry appointed to the Wildlife Board.
-Community and Economic Development: Doug Alder, Leonard Arrington, Hugh Garner and Amy Allen Price reappointed and Marilyn Barker appointed to the Board of State History.
