Just when you thought that your outrage over SB-314 was beginning to go from a sharp pain to a dull ache the anti-"you" weasels at the State Capitol have yet again quietly amended the Alcohol Beverage Licensing bill to take away yet more freedoms from bar Utah's owners.
The Utah Hospitality Association is upset over a one-word change in a substitute draft of the bill that changes a previous law that forbid daily discounted “liquor” to prohibit daily discounted “alcoholic products” this change would make it so that bars and clubs can no longer advertise or offer discounted beer specials. The change is aimed at curbing “over consumption” according to bill sponsor Sen. John Valentine, R-Orem.
Representatives of the UHA's requests for an audience with his Highness, St.Valentine have apparently been ignored. Our spineless, puppet-governor, however, did respond and listen to the concerns of the UHA.
“Any laws that are secretly drafted, then passed with little or no input, should concern all Utahns.” said, Lisa Marcie. Get used to it people with the passage of HB477 an open and transparent government is looking to go the way of the Utah keg.
