Election Notes:
  • This Act lowers from 21 to 19 years the age at which a person may, without limitation as to purpose, purchase or consume alcoholic beverages and be admitted to establishments licensed by the state to sell such beverages. It also lowers from 21 to 18 the age at which a person may be employed to sell spirituous liquor, beer and wine in Class H licensed establishments.
