ST. GEORGE, Utah — In a story Oct. 6 about a congressman’s chief of staff being named a deputy director of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, The Associated Press erroneously identified the congressman’s name in a headline. The congressman is Rep. Chris Stewart, not Rep. Chris Smith.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Utah Rep. Stewart’s chief of staff named BLM deputy director
A Utah congressman’s chief of staff has been named a deputy director at the U.S. Bureau of Land Management
