SALT LAKE CITY (Legal Newsline) -- A Utah House of Representatives committee charged with investigating former Attorney General John Swallow will report its findings at a public meeting in the next two weeks.

According to the Deseret News, the committee met Saturday to wrap up its work in the wake of Swallow's resignation, which was effective last week. It unanimously approved a motion to hold a public meeting.

The House and the Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office were still in the middle of their investigations of Swallow when he stepped down last month.

Swallow, a Republican, had been fighting allegations of ethics and election law violations since he took office earlier this year. He said the ongoing investigations into his alleged misdeeds were taking their toll on him, his family and his finances.

State Rep. Jim Dunnigan, a Republican and who chairs the House investigative panel, told the News that it's important for lawmakers and the state's residents to hear the committee's findings.

According to the newspaper, the committee has spent more than $2 million on the investigation.
