Utah Law Requires Drinks To Be Poured Behind Closed Doors

Posted: Updated:

A law requiring restaurant servers to hide alcoholic drinks while being poured will stick around in Utah.

State lawmakers tried to pass a bill to end the so-called "Zion Curtain" law.

The law is based off the assumption is that alcohol being poured encourages children to drink at a younger age.

 State representative Kraig Powell dropped the bill from the house floor due to the lack of support.

"What I tried to do was show that the evidence is not really clear that this particular restriction really serves those goals, and then provide another option," explains Powell.

State Senator John Valentine counters "we don't need to have more alcohol bills with all the changes we've made in the last five years."

Representative Powell says he won't rule out the possibility of getting rid of the law next year.
