SALT LAKE CITY – The so-called ‘Zion Curtain’ will remain in place at bars in Utah restaurants after a bill seeking to remove the barriers met opposition in the Utah Senate.

Rep. Kraig Powell, R-District 54, said he has abandoned efforts to pass HB 285 due to opposition in the State Senate.

The bill would have removed the 7-foot 2-inch tall barriers that restaurants in the state must have in place to prevent children from seeing alcoholic beverages being prepared.
