Inconceivable!

It seems that Walmart's lobbyist's have more influence on Utah's hill than LDS-inc.'s lobbyists. :lol: (I am a bit surprised.)

Could Bishop... Uh, I mean Governor Herbert still screw it up?

I sincerely hope not.

And I'm a little surprised, but a little not, because the church is losing political power in Utah. It may be gradual, but it is happening.

According to the link I posted, it isn't quite time to celebrate.
The bill faces another vote in the Senate before moving over to the House. However, it faces a rough road there.

Yup. Still plenty of time for the sheep on the hill to screw it up.

I hope it passes anyway. (One can always hope, right? At least until the end.)

Completely blindsided. Did anyone else foresee this coming?

I think that every time TSCC pulls a stunt like this, they just look more stupid to the entire world. Maybe they think they look like heroes in the eyes of their TBMs.
And they probably do. I remember in our ward there was a group of fairly hardcore TBMs that would not even drink root beer, as it could be confused by an observer with caffeinated colas and therefore would have the appearance of evil. They would be the same type to think that a 1% difference in alcohol content would make a huge difference and be a "win" for the church.

Utah lawmakers have struck a deal to let higher-alcohol beer be sold in Utah grocery and convenience stores.

House members signed off on the measure Wednesday by a 61-14 vote, sending the bill back to the Senate for a final vote that is expected to occur Thursday.

This second substitute bill would boost the cap on retail beer from 3.2 percent to 4 percent by weight, a level that would include the majority of beer that already is in retail outlets, said bill sponsor, Sen. Jerry Stevenson, R-Layton.

Better than nothing, I suppose.
