SALT LAKE CITY - A bill to rename Legacy Highway died a quiet death on Monday, when the legislation was never brought up for vote in the Senate.
A deadline to hear all Senate-sponsored legislation passed on Monday night, with the bill still stuck on the Senate's reading calendar. That means the bill effectively died this session. The Senate, by rule, can only hear House-based bills the last three days of the 2013 session, which ends Thursday at midnight.
The legislation, SB 177, sponsored by Sen. Stuart Reid, R-Ogden, would have renamed Legacy and the Mountain View corridor after former Gov. Michael Leavitt.
The Davis County Chamber opposed the bill, and several Davis County commissioners said the rename would mess with branding done in the county.
