UNDERAGE DRINKING: Bill To Hold Adults Responsible
The Iowa Senate has approved a bill that would hold adults responsible for knowingly allowing underage drinking.
The bill passed unanimously Monday.
It proposes that any adult hosting parties on their property where alcoholic beverages are consumed by underage drinkers would be charged with a misdemeanor.
This bill would apply statewide but wouldn’t trump rules currently in place in Iowa counties and cities.
The bill now goes to the Iowa House for consideration.
