• A bill from Rep. Brian King, D-Salt Lake City, would make it a class B misdemeanor to fail to provide assistance in the event of a crime or another emergency. King is scheduled to present HB125, his so-called duty-to-assist bill, to the House Judiciary Committee at 2 p.m.

• A somewhat related bill, sponsored Rep. Tim Quinn, R-Heber City, seeks to addresses civil immunity for people who use force to remove a confined child from a motor vehicle. HB152, Quinn's good Samaritan law amendments bill, is on the agenda for the 2 p.m. meeting of the House Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Committee.
