SALT LAKE CITY — The House approved a bill Tuesday that would create an advisory council to study limiting the number of Cabinet members who report directly to Gov. Gary Herbert.

Rep. Wayne Harper, R-West Jordan, said the advisory council created under HB280 would make recommendations on restructuring state agencies to make Utah's government more efficient.

"I think the outcome will be very valuable," the bill's sponsor said.

The measure now moves to the Senate for its consideration.
