Salt Lake Tribune: Herbert Calls Special Session to OK More Liquor Licenses, Fix Ed Funding

 Better late than never, we guess... Must be an election year

Fiddling No More
Just as it was beginning to appear that Utah Governor Gary Herbert, and the Utah state churchislature legislature would continue "fiddling around" until commencement of the 2013 legislative session in January, the Salt Lake Tribune reports this morning that the governor is finally getting around to taking action to immediately address the pressing crisis of Utah's liquor license "bottleneck", along with the prickly problem of a $25 million shortfall in the state education budget, resulting from (oops) an "accounting error":
Better late than never, we guess.

Must be an election year.

Utah: The  best managed state?

Well... that's what they keep telling us, at least.

I knew it was just a matter of time before the message of making money got through to the legislature. More liquor licenses have little or nothing to do with a ever more diverse non-mormon population. No the real message is that we have a chance to increase business and therefore more money to the state. Many members of the legislature woulld be happy to bring back prohibition if they could find a way to replace the lost money.

Our all-knowing lawmakers were probably leaning toward more licenses until some Provo drunk started using the sidewalk for his road to his local Utah DABC watering hole.  This will put a wrench into the works, just watch!
