SALT LAKE CITY — On a vote of 6-23, the Utah Senate killed a bill Friday that says the Utah Legislature should study whether to introduce legislation to classify counties as urban or rural.
Senate Assistant Majority Whip Peter Knudson, R-Brigham City, said the point of the study is to bring consistency to the state code.
HB220, sponsored by Rep. Ronda Menlove, R-Garland, contemplates an issue worthy of study, said Sen. Margaret Dayton, R-Orem.
"I don't think it's worthy of putting into code that we're having a study," she said.
