Big changes are coming to Utah's Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
Executive director Sal Petilos retired as a new administration is moving in. Governor-elect Spencer Cox has tapped Tiffany Clason, a former staffer for Congressman Ben McAdams, to lead Utah's alcohol control agency. She has a resume that includes food and beverage industry experience in London, and political experience working for Republicans and Democrats.
On the latest episode of "Utah Booze News: An Alcohol Policy Podcast" produced by FOX 13 and The Salt Lake Tribune, we also have a look at what the Cox administration may be considering when it comes to changes at the DABC (can you say "to go cocktails?").
Also, the DABC commission is starting to speak up against the Utah State Legislature. Some commissioners have had it with a lack of bar licenses.
