Another year, another slew of bills that did and didn't make the cut to head to the governor's desk for signing.
From abortion to funding a Provo airport expansion, many topics were covered.
Here are five bills that passed and five that didn't during the 2019 Utah Legislative Session.
Passed: Abortion bills
The Legislature passed two bills dealing with abortion. House Bill 166 looks to ban abortions sought solely because of a Down Syndrome diagnosis, while House Bill 136 would ban most abortions after 18 weeks. HB 136 is expected to face litigation challenging its constitutionality.
Those bills will now heads to the governor for a signature.
Passed: Airport funding
Additional expansion on the Provo Airport should break ground this year after the Legislature approved $9 million for the project. This money would expand the single gate to four gates.
Passed: BYU GRAMA
Senate Bill 197 passed with flying colors, making BYU subject to public records laws, just like any other police department in the state.
This came about after BYU had previously argued that as a private institution, its police department was not required to provide certain records. That bill now heads to the governor for a signature.
Passed: Tobacco amendments
After Lehi paved the way of Utah cities raising the legal age to purchase tobacco products to 21, the state also acted, and if the governor signs the bill into law, Utah will require that customers be 21 to purchase tobacco products.
Passed: Hate crimes bill
Senate Bill 103 passed Wednesday, the results of a several year effort to pass stronger hate crime legislation in Utah. The legislation creates stronger penalties for people convicted of targeting someone because of factors such as sexual orientation, race, political expression or religion.
Failed: Tax reform
Tax reform was talked about a lot heading into the legislative session, a bill unveiled in the latter days of the session failed to gain approval.
The ambitious tax plan, which would have lowered sales and income tax rates but started taxing most services.
Failed: Conversion therapy ban
One of the biggest topics this session was a proposed ban on conversion therapy in Utah. However, it stalled after changes were made in House committee that supporters said undermined the original intent of the bill.
Failed: Cellphones while driving
A bill that would have banned use of hand-held cellphones while driving failed. Opponents argued it it infringed on personal liberties and was too demanding of motorists.
Failed: Gun control measures
A bill named "Lauren's Law" after slain University of Utah student Lauren McCluskey failed in committee, as well as a "red flag" bill. Lauren's Law would've made it easier to levy suits against people who loaned a weapon that was later used in a violent crime.
The red flag bill would have allowed judges to remove firearms from dangerous people.
Failed: Bus seat belts
Lawmakers rejected a bill to require seat belts on new school buses, citing money as the primary concern. Advocates for the measures said that criminal penalties are levied against those who don't buckle up in their personal vehicle, but nothing for buckling up kids in school buses.
