Amendments drastically alter a bill to ban conversion therapy in Utah, leading to the resignation of a prominent LGBTQ advocate from a state suicide task force. Utah lawmakers abandon a proposed tax overhaul, for now. And prosecutors drop counts against a medical cannabis patient facing drug charges.
