We're moving closer to the reality of no more private clubs in Utah as we know them.

The State Liquor Commission has voted to request legislation for the 2009 session that would change private clubs into public bars.

At the same time, spokesperson Lisa Roskelley says a representative from the governor's office has met with officials of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

"More than anything we're just kind of trying to bring all the stakeholders to the table and make sure everybody has a place to speak," she said.

It's unclear how the meeting went.

"It's been more of an information gathering and no sort of decision or policy or statement has been made from them," Roskelley added.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving, meanwhile, has an alternative proposal: a free, two-week club membership for tourists.
