Bill advances to make it tougher to sue Utah over roads

Over objections from defense attorneys who say it goes too far, a bill to make it more difficult to sue the state over poor road design or conditions that contribute to crashes was endorsed unanimously Tuesday by the Senate Transportation Committee.
The sponsor of SB50, Sen. Lyle Hillyard, R-Logan, said fiscal analysts figure the state could lose $1 million a year in lawsuits without the bill.
