Utah's Death Penalty Standard Changing

Salt Lake City, UT – In Monday's legislative action, a House committee advanced a bill to change the standards for imposing the death penalty for crimes against children. A bill allowing 6-year-olds to ride off-highway vehicles was heard in committee, but no action was taken. And a bill to regulate the use of tanning beds by teenagers easily passed a critical vote in the Utah Senate. KUER's Dan Bammes reports.
