NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE
DAR File No.: 31287
Filed: 04/29/2008, 09:56
Received by: NL
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
This rule amendment is being proposed to implement law changes made by passage of S.B. 211 (2008). (DAR NOTE: S.B. 211 (2008) is found at Chapter 391, Laws of Utah 2008, and was effective 05/05/2008.)
Summary of the rule or change:
The statute no longer requires that a private club's liquor price list be included in the club's house rules. This proposed amendment also removes that requirement from the private club rule.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
None--Removing the requirement for clubs to include their liquor price list in their house rules in no way affects the state budget.
None--Removing the requirement for clubs to include their liquor price list in their house rules in no way affects local governments.
small businesses and persons other than businesses:
None--This proposed rule amendment only relieves clubs from having to include their liquor price list in their house rules and will have no fiscal impact on private clubs no matter the size. The amendment will not have a fiscal impact on others.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
Private clubs are not required to remove their liquor price list from their house rules, they are just no longer required to include the price list in their house rules. This being the case, there should be no significant compliance costs in implementing this rule amendment.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
The department staff members feel that removing the requirement for private clubs to include their liquor price list in their house rules is a step toward more reasonable liquor laws. The department is in favor of this change. Dennis R. Kellen, Director
