UI student says new law is a "double standard"

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL)-- A University of Iowa student is accusing university officials of having a "double standard," by licensing certain products with the Hawkeye logo.

Student Matt Pfaltzgraf leads a group opposed to Iowa City's new law, that keeps anyone under 21 out of bars during prime business hours.

As many UI officials support that new law, Pfaltzgraf says it's unfair that the university has a policy against selling anything promoting alcohol use, but allows the Hawkeye logo to be printed on shot glasses and pitchers.

However, UI officials say those items are collectibles and their use cannot be controlled.
