Utah Governor Signing Bills From Legislative Session

Utah's governor has signed more than half of the 474 bills state legislators passed during the 2016 session.

Republican Gov. Gary Herbert has until March 30 to sign or veto the remaining bills approved during the 45-day legislative session.

The governor has approved such proposals as funding for a California coal shipping port and gun safety training for some public school students. But the fate of many other bills remains to be seen.

Herbert can also allow legislation to become law without his signature if he doesn't take action by the end of the month. He has yet to veto any measures.
