ABC 4 News has learned that the LDS Church is now involved in drafting new, major liquor legislation for the state of Utah.
This legislation could soon make more liquor licenses available for Utah restaurants and bars.
Over the last few weeks, the LDS Church has quietly been meeting with key players in this liquor debate.
These include those most interested in its outcome and those who will decide what legislation, if any, is passed.
A legislative auditor recently said that a lack of liquor licenses may be keeping chains from opening restaurants here.
