SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- States across the country have introduced twice as many immigration bills so far this year than all of last year.

That's according to a report by the National Conference of State Legislatures.

The report says --- as of April 13 --- lawmakers in all 50 states had introduced nearly 1,200 bills. Last year, a total of 570 bills were introduced.

The report also says 57 of the nearly 1,200 such bills passed. But In Utah, all such measures failed, including bills to repeal in-state tuition for qualified illegal immigrants.
