    I have no problem with the restaurants that are here now.

    This article forgot to mention that hostess management recently gave itself huge pay raises, then asked workers to take cuts in pay.

    While this is a common sense thing in some ways, the unitnentied consequence is that local restaurants are at an even further competitive disadvantage.

    While I applaud the effort to make more licenses available, I fear the move will further the cultural homogenization of the nation at the expense of local color. Who needs more of the bland repetition of a dozen more chain outlets when you could have the invigorating variety of Meditrina, Tin Angel, Pago, or the Green Pig? Plus, the operating expenses (advertising, supplies, ingredients, menu printing, etc.) of local restaurants stay in the community, as do the profits.

    An excellent common sense solution from one of our more thoughtful and pragmatic legislators.

    Pass it and get on with cutting spending in other areas. And, with privatizing the state liquor stores.

    Utah liquor laws are a lost cause.
