State representatives are drafting new legislation to prevent people under 21 tfrom being able to get a hold of alcohol, especially at house parties.
Current law prohibits adults from allowing those who are underage from drinking on "premises" but premises is only defined as establishments with alcohol permits, so houses are excluded.
This proposed bill would allow law enforcement to cite those who host drinkiing parties for under-agers.
Dan Terrio, youth development manager with the Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce says, "It's one thing to serve your own child which that's their choice but when you bring another person's child into your home and serve them you are now responsible and liable if something were to happen to them."
