Utah Legislature OKs adding 90 restaurant liquor licenses
News from Salt Lake Tribune:
(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah liquor lobbyist Steve Barth (left) and LDS Church lobbyist Bill Evans (right) watch the House of Representatives as they debate SB4001, to increase the number of restaurant liquor licenses. The industry and church were participants in negotiations on the bill that flew through the special session on Wednesday.
Liquor issues are often tough for Utah lawmakers to swallow. But a bill to issue 90 new liquor licenses to alleviate a shortfall among restaurants zipped through a legislative special session Wednesday without a hiccup.
“This is a fair balance between the concern of public safety and accessibility,” said Sen. John Valentine, R-Orem, the sponsor of the bill.
