Loosening Liquor Laws on Access Utah

Senator john Valentine, utah state senate,

Utah's laws underwent extensive reform a few years ago, and now Sen. John Valentine is creating a bill that would create a "master license" for hotels, which would free up licenses currently required for the restaurants, catering services and bars inside the hotels.  
The control of alcohol is a vexing problem from state to state, and Utah has an interest in controlling alcohol for public safety reasons. That's asserted by many citizens, but if state laws are seen as too restrictive, it may harm the economy. 

We talk about alcohol on Access Utah for the hour, with  Sen. John Valentine and guests from Hyde Park, Nibley.
