By John Saltas
POSTED // Mar 11,2009 - After 40 years, Utah's private clubs may finally become extinct. While I can't wait for July 1 to go into a private club without being asked for ID or a club card, until that bill actually passes both the House and Senate, until Governor Huntsman signs it into law, and until I pinch myself twice, I won't be burning my private club memberships.
