Report to Congress on the Prevention and Reduction of Underage Drinking

In 2006, Congress passed, and the President signed, the Sober Truth on Preventing (STOP) Underage Drinking Act, Public Law 109-422. Among other provisions, the STOP Act formally established the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking (ICCPUD) and called for an annual Report to Congress to be submitted by the Secretary of HHS. This fifth Report to Congress on the Prevention and Reduction of Underage Drinking provides information on the nature and extent of the problem, and an overview of the federal government’s response. It also includes data on 25 state underage drinking policies and laws, enforcement activities associated with those policies, prevention programs, and state expenditures for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
