SALT LAKE CITY -- A longtime Salt Lake County councilman has lobbied on behalf of Utah's public transportation agency without making his connection known when voting on those issues.
The Deseret News reports that Salt Lake County Councilman Randy Horiuchi lobbied on behalf of the Utah Transit Authority as within the past two years.
Horiuchi lists himself as a lobbyist for a firm that does work for Utah Transit Authority on the state's website but he says the work he's done isn't lobbying.
He says the work mostly consisted of calling city officials in Salt Lake City suburbs to help get light rail lines built there.
State law requires lobbyists to register every two years and disclose their clients.
Horiuchi has been on the Salt Lake County Council since 2002.
