SALT LAKE CITY -- The College of Eastern Utah has a new name.

State lawmakers finalized a name change and structural setup for the Price college on Thursday, passing SB 258, which renames the school Utah State University Eastern.

House members voted unanimously to approve the name change, and the legislation now moves to the governor for further consideration.

The bill also specifies a chancellor for the school should be appointed by the president of USU and report directly to the USU president.
