SALT LAKE CITY, Utah: Two Utah citizen-driven groups are looking to create two new commissions: an redistricting commission and an ethics commission. On August 12, Utahns for Ethical Government filed a ballot initiative for the November 2010 ballot. The initiative proposes creating a five-member independent commission to investigate ethics complaints.[1]

Earlier the Fair Boundaries Coalition filed an initiative to create establish a commission to set the state's 75 state legislative district boundaries, rather than continue with the current method whereby state legislators re-draw district boundaries after each decennial federal census.[2]

Both groups must a minimum of approximately 95,000 valid signatures by April 15, 2010.[3]
