DescriptionState Sen. Dan Liljenquist, R-Bountiful, has resigned from his post in the Legislature.

Liljenquist submitted a resignation letter to the Senate's leadership late Thursday afternoon, effective immediately, said Ric Cantrell, the Senate's chief deputy.

Liljenquist said in his resignation letter, "Life is short. It's time to move on."

"The people of South Davis County are among the greatest on earth," he said. "I love them for their understanding of the appropriate role of government, for the volunteer service they give, the strength of their families and for their support of sound fiscal policy."

Liljenquist, who was contacted by the Standard-Examiner, declined to provide details about his resignation but said he will make a decision about future plans for public office early next year.
