(KSL News) The legislature soon could consider a bill coming from the office of the governor to do away with private club memberships.
A spokesperson for the governor told the Deseret News that his office is preparing to "take the lead" on the matter instead of waiting for the state liquor commission to draft a bill.
In July, members of the commission voted to begin work on such a bill, which would eliminate the requirement for applications and membership fees at private clubs. However, in August they voted to "slow the process" after one member raised concerns about the change.
