Austin American-Statesman - - MORE OF TODAY’S TOP NEWS -

Utah is on the verge of be­com­ing the first state to lower the max­i­mum le­gal blood-al­co­hol con­tent for driv­ers to 0.05 per­cent. Law­mak­ers in the state passed a mea­sure last week to lower the limit from 0.08 per­cent. Cur­rently, all 50 states have a 0.08 per­cent cap. Mor­mons make up 60 per­cent of the state pop­u­la­tion and are not sup­posed to drink al­co­hol.
