Slow start for open-market Utah liquor license law

David Gladwell, chairman of the state liquor commission, looks on during the monthly meeting of the state liquor commission Tuesday, July 29, 2014, in Salt Lake City.

The slow start doesn't come as a surprise to Gladwell, who thinks most of the 10-12 businesses on the wait list for new licenses through the state will sit tight. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
