They included: Brian Doughty, D-Salt Lake City (five bills); Keith Grover, R-Provo (4); Craig Frank, R-Pleasant Grove, (3); Francis Gibson, R-Mapleton (2); Dixon Pitcher, R-Ogden (2); and Janice Fisher, D-West Valley City (1).

High-office candidates • The legislators running for higher office this year had bill-pass rates that were lower than the 62 percent average of all bills that passed.
Rep. Chris Herrod, R-Provo, is running for the U.S. Senate. He passed two of the nine bills he introduced, or 22 percent.
Rep. Ken Sumsion, R-American Fork, is running for governor. He passed four of the 10 bills he introduced, or 40 percent.
Rep. Steve Sandstrom, R-Orem, is running for Congress. He passed three of 13 bills, or 23 percent.
Two senators are running for Salt Lake County mayor: Romero and Ben McAdams, D-Salt Lake City. McAdams passed nine of 15 bills or 60 percent, while Romero passed one of eight for 13 percent.
