Utah Adjourns Veto Session Sine Die
The Utah Legislature adjourned a veto session sine die on Wednesday after overriding a pair of vetoes from Gov. Gary Herbert.
The Legislature resurrected and passed Senate Bill 171, allowing legislators to defend laws they pass in court instead of relying on the Attorney General’s office, and House Bill 198, requiring the Attorney General to give written legal opinions to the Legislature when requested.
A spokesperson for the Governor said he hopes for an opportunity to test the constitutionality of the new laws in court.
