Stoel Rives attorney Catherine Parrish Lake recently testified before the Utah legislature regarding the state's liquor license quotas. Lawmakers are now holding a special session to increase some types of liquor licenses to meet demand and to delay the sale of existing licenses on the open market.

Catherine discussed the impact the licensing shortfall is having on Utah restaurants. Catherine notes restaurants also must overcome laws that lump them in a category where they must compete with bars for available licenses, which is not to be addressed in the special session.

Catherine's testimony was discussed in local Utah publications and on television. Click on the links below to read more.
