  • 'Did I get cut off?' and other alcohol policy questions

    Sep 29 2021
    DABC commissioners don't appear to be happy with the Utah State Legislature. At Tuesday's meeting, the commission had three coveted bar licenses to award — and 15 applicants. You see, Utah hands out bar licenses by population quota. The formula — one license per 10,200 people — is a made-up number by the legislature. Commissioner Tara Thue called the lack of bar licenses "dismal," and Chair Thomas Jacobson told people in the crowd to speak up and call their legislators to fix it. On the latest episode of "Utah Booze News: An Alcohol Policy Podcast," we recap the DABC meeting. Tanner Strickland Lenart, an attorney with the firm Christensen & Jensen, whose specialty is liquor laws, returns to answer your questions submitted on social media about why Utah laws are the way they are.
