Close votes in the Utah legislature

Close votes are rare in the Utah legislature. It's more common for Republicans and Democrats alike to join on the same side of the vote in overwhelming majorities. (Details about that are here.) But close votes do happen on occasion. The tables below list the closest votes from the 2008 general session. To see close votes from another year, click one of these links:
