SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah Gov. Gary Herbert has signed 19 bills into law this week but his office has not yet announced the actions.

Herbert’s office typically releases a list of bills on the day they’re signed. But as of midday Friday, his office had not disclosed 18 bills that the Legislature’s bill-tracking website shows were signed Tuesday and Wednesday.

Herbert’s official Twitter account posted a photo Wednesday morning showing him signing a 19th measure, which mainly funds homeless shelters in Salt Lake County.

The bills he’s signed include a law allowing people to pass down social media and email accounts to relatives after they die.

Most of the measures don’t deal with hot-button issues of the legislative session.

Herbert’s office said in a statement Friday that things are moving quickly and they’re working to get a list of signed bills together.
