SALT LAKE CITY — The Senate unanimously passed a bill Tuesday to restrict access and use of Utah voter registration information.

Sen. Karen Mayne, D-West Valley City, began pushing SB36 after personal voter information was bought from the lieutenant governor's office for $1,050 and posted at the website

The bill prohibits a person from using the list of registered voters for certain purposes, such as soliciting donations or conducting a poll. It includes exceptions for political, scholarly, journalistic and governmental purposes.

SB36 now goes to the House.
