SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Gov. Gary Herbert is asking the state Attorney General's Office to scrutinize Utah's commitment to the Common Core.

Herbert announced Thursday he's calling for the office to look into potential federal snags related to the national guidelines for math and language arts.

He's also asking a group of Utah higher education experts to weigh in on the set of standards.

His office has created a webpage inviting public comment related to benchmarks adopted in Utah in 2010.

The governor at a Thursday news conference he's heard both good comments and negative ones and that both sides have shared the same frustrations under different terms.

Federal officials have urged states to adopt the standards, but they are neither designed nor required by the federal government.
