SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber has been appointed to serve on a federal Department of Justice advisory committee.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/1OMBD5u ) that U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced the appointment Wednesday. The DOJ says the committee is charged with helping to shape the department’s approach to securing equal justice under the law.

Huber will be joined on the panel by U.S. Attorney Peter Neronha, of Rhode Island, who was also appointed to Lynch’s committee Wednesday.

Lynch released a statement saying she looks forward to using Huber and Neronha to pursue the committee’s agenda of creating a more equal nation. She described the two as “outstanding law enforcement officers and devoted public servants.”
