SALT LAKE CITY — Ahead of the Utah State Legislative session, lawmakers are beginning to file bills to be considered.
Among the recently numbered bills:
- Sen. Todd Weiler, R-Woods Cross, has proposed adding accommodations to the state’s anti-discrimination law for pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding.
- Rep. Angela Romero, D-Salt Lake City, has proposed a bill that says mistakenly believing someone is 18 is not a criminal defense when it comes to human trafficking of a child.
- Rep. Kraig Powell, R-Heber, has proposed a bill that would ban drones from going over wildfire areas.
- Sen. Al Jackson, R-Highland, is proposing a resolution calling for the repeal of the 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, having the legislature instead of the people elect U.S. senators.
- If you’ve lost job opportunities because you stayed at home to care for a child, it could factor into how much alimony you’d get in a divorce under a bill proposed by Rep. Keven Stratton, R-Orem.
The Utah State Legislature meets Jan. 25.
