(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Utah's alcohol commissioners are considering changing the rules for private clubs' advertising.

The commission voted unanimously yesterday to set up a 30-day public comment period on the proposed rule changes.

Under the proposed change, private clubs must still identify their business as being for "members," but they would also be able to add "for members and their guests."

The proposed rule removes the ban on advertising that promotes free food, beverages and happy hour.

Club owners and free-speech advocates have been threatening to sue over the rules. Another set of state alcohol advertising rules has been deemed "irrational" by the federal appeals court in Denver.
