A bill that would have made it easier to keep some records private has failed to pass the Utah Legislature.More here.
The House and Senate didn't reach a compromise on House Bill 122, which made changes to the balancing test for the release of 8 types of records covered under the Government Records Access and Management Act that deal with police investigations and legal proceedings.
The Senate passed a version of the bill earlier and sent it back to the House. On Thursday, the last day of the session, the House offered its own version. The two chambers couldn't agree in conference committee and the bill died.
