    Do Utah citizens support big government or small government? These liquor laws have created a large government layer and complex rules and regulations for business.

    Education and enforcement about alcohol is best done in the home by parents. Government should not be in that business, other than enforcing common sense age limits.

    Before easing alcohol restrictions, lawmakers should conduct a study similar to an environmental impact statement for projects affecting the environment. The study should determine the extent to which the new law will affect highway safety. They should vote on the law only after considering the affect the law will have on the safety of others.

    What a bizarre length we have to go to so we can get a beer at a pizza hut. But we're moving forward, slowly but forward.

    As an active LDS adult, I think the Utah Liquor laws are ridiculous. We always talk about being business friendly in this state. If that is so, than let the businesses serve alcohol. When I travel out of state for work frequently, my dinner has never been ruined by someone else ordering a drink. The "zion curtain" is a stupid idea as was private clubs. Let people drink and help the tourism industry selling conventions to come here, able to take these stupid rules off of the table.

    Once again proving that in Utah "Big Business" rules! We'll bend for national chains with unlimited cash, but say the average joe wants the laws changed to treat him like an adult, they'll be none of that.

    Meanwhile the geniuses on the hill are passing laws to make sure Crazy people can pack a pistol into the bar?
