SALT LAKE CITY — Thursday marks the final day of the 2019 legislative session.

Over the past seven weeks, lawmakers have already passed more than 430 bills and resolutions, and with a full day ahead, are expected to tackle many more.

Both the House and Senate are slated to convene at 8 a.m. today, and if traditional holds, the gavel won't come down until near midnight.

Issues discussed at the Statehouse during the day include:

  • The Senate passed a bill 27-1 on Thursday that raises the allowable alcohol content for beer on store shelves from 3.2 percent by weight to 4 percent.
