(KSL News) -- On Utah's Capitol Hill, a hate crimes bill is defeated once again.

Some lawmakers objected to the bill saying the measure was driven by a radical "gay agenda".

The bill listed protected categories, including sexual orientation.

The bill was amended, and then defeated.

Democratic legislators have tried to get a tougher hate crime bill passed every year since 1991.
