(KSL News) Governor Huntsman has been busy, signing more than 30 bills into law in the past 24 hours.

Among the measures signed by Huntsman is one that lowers the age requirement for hunting big game from 14 to 12, as long as an adult is present.

Another bans the use of camcorders to record movies in theaters.

The governor also signed a bill that will allow the state to suspend the driver's license of parents who fall behind on child support.

Another bill signed by Governor Huntsman finally puts to rest the debate over guns on the campus of the University of Utah. The new law allows students to choose NOT to live with roommates who carry guns.

Because of the action, the University Board of Trustees has decided to drop a federal lawsuit seeking a campus-wide weapons ban
