A fight in the Utah Legislature over what should be named the state fossil has been avoided with the introduction of an official state dinosaur.

State Sen. Curt Bramble will end his push to have the Utahraptor replace the Allosaurus as the state fossil, and he plans to introduce legislation to name the Utahraptor as the new state dinosaur.
