Utah bars and restaurants are in danger of going under in the COVID-19 pandemic.

A critical deadline looms on Aug. 31 for bar licenses to be renewed. Utah's alcohol control agency says 59 bar licenses have not yet been renewed and that could be a sign of economic trouble for the hospitality industry.

Also on "Utah Booze News: An Alcohol Policy Podcast," FOX 13's Ben Winslow and The Salt Lake Tribune's Kathy Stephenson talk to Rep. Timothy Hawkes, who is tasked by the House Republican majority with running liquor legislation about pay raises for DABC employees, the idea of "to go" liquor sales and even the word PRIVATIZATION.
