People with drinking problems do not drink their booze at restaurants because of
the cost. They will drink the cheap stuff at home where there is no control on
the amount they can be served. Some things cannot be legislated. Utah
lawmakers are starting to realize that making laws or supporting laws that allow
adults to be adults just make sense. The issue with underage and over served
drinkers is unlikely to become a problem in a restaurant atmosphere because of
all the oversight not to mentioned witnesses. BTW, this law has something to do
with funding schools, it will generate more tax revenue through the sale of
alcohol and subsequent increased food sales.
Greeeeat... so more booze in Utah... oh and btw, as an afterthought, we really
ought to check out that 25 million dollars that we failed to fund to schools.
Oh Utah, where are your priorities?
