Salt Lake City (AP) A house committee has passed a bill that would eliminate Utah's private club system and the so-called “Zion Curtain” separating bartenders from customers in restaurants. The bill passed on an 8-5 vote yesterday.

The bill would eliminate a requirement that customers fill out an application and pay a fee for the right to enter a bar.

The bill will now be debated on the House floor.

    The pollster has it right...Utah was "loosening" their liquor laws, however, the "Zion Curtains" just hide booze from children. Utah's legislators appear to think "if you don't see it, it doesn't exist." So, coming from another state, the liquor laws continue to be a laughing matter....No change here!
