WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff is telling Congress to back off efforts to take control of liquor sales.
Shurtleff was in Washington, D.C., Wednesday to testify before lawmakers. He says a new uniform regulation proposal would make it easier for companies to sell alcohol in states like Utah that currently have total control of sales.
The attorney general also said that when England recently tried uniform regulation it was a disaster for teen drinking and crime.
Shurtleff argued the states know best and should make their own decisions.
