Despite an extensive review of Idaho's liquor laws by a special Governor's task force, it looks like nothing is likely to change next year.

According to a story published in the Twin Falls Times-News, the task force convened by Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter, will not introduce any legislation in 2008, instead waiting to make a move until 2009.

The group has been examining Idaho's decades-old alcohol control laws since February, and has previously stated it would consider moving to do away with the state's quota system for liquor licenses, and give the authority to cities and counties. Currently, liquor licenses are distributed on a per-capita basis with one license for every 1,500 residents.
