Idaho Gov. Butch Otter formally nominated Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire as the incoming chairman of the Western Governors Association, and the nomination was approved unanimously amid a round of applause. Otter then nominated Utah Gov. Gary Herbert to be vice-chairman of the group, and that nomination, too, won unanimous approval.
