Utah's liquor laws are unique. Some like them. Many ridicule them and now state Senator Jim Dabakis says he plans to change them.

“If we want tourists to come to our state and feel comfortable in that we don't have a lot of weird laws,” said Dabakis.

"We need to get rid of some of these weird alcohol issues that aren't about public safety, but that are just plain weird."

Dabakis says he plans to challenge some of those issues in the upcoming legislative session. One item on the list is the "intent to dine" issue which requires restaurants to ask alcohol-ordering patrons if they would like to order food as well.
