The 45-day general session of the Utah Legislature hit its halfway point on Tuesday and, "We have passed more bills and introduced fewer bills" than normal, said Senate Rules Committee Chairman John Valentine, R-Provo.
He said the Legislature so far introduced 483 bills the least at this stage for any session during the past decade. The previous low mark in that time was 485 bills, and the highest was 672.
Valentine said 65 bills had passed both houses. In the past 10 years, the highest was 74 and the lowest was 38.
