Lawmakers target adults who host underage drinking parties

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Additional Info

Wisconsin law enforcement officials are turning to the state legislature for help to prohibit adults from hosting underage drinking parties, after a court ruling made 54 local government prohibitions unenforceable.
On October 26, 2016, the Wisconsin Appeals Court ruled a social hosting ordinance in Fond du Lac County could not apply to a high school graduation party at a home where adults allowed other people's underage children to drink alcohol, because it was not consistent with state law.
