California lawmakers voted Oct. 14 to allow AEG’s Club Nokia in Los Angeles to be exempt from a state ban on liquor ads inside clubs.

The bill, written by State Assemblyman John Perez (D-Los Angeles) was passed by the Senate 30 to 3, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The law prohibits the advertising of liquor if the club is selling the brands being promoted.

“At a time when we have the highest unemployment since the Great Depression, this bill will help bring more jobs, more people back to work in the city of Los Angeles,” State Sen. Tony Strickland reportedly said.
