§60-7-1. Legislative findings and purposes.
The Legislature of West Virginia, having carefully considered
the provisions of section 46 of article VI of the constitution of
this state and all of the matters giving rise to the enactment
thereof and having further considered the operations of private
clubs as defined in this article, hereby determines and finds that
such private clubs are not saloons or other public places in which
the sale and consumption of intoxicating liquors are required to be
prohibited by the provisions of said section 46 of article VI of
said constitution; but, to the contrary, are private places in
which such sale and consumption of intoxicating liquors are
constitutionally permitted and authorized.
