ND Underage Drinking

Feb 21, 2013 at 7:12 am

 

Underage drinking took center stage as members of the North Dakota House passed legislation to crack down on those providing booze to minors.   A person caught buying the stuff for the under 21 crowd would face a 500 dollar fine.  That would double for a second offense and become a class “C” felony the third time around.  Representative Joe Heilman says the bill sends a message.  Heilman says a recent survey suggests 84% of underage drinkers get their alcohol from fiends over 21 and 26.8% get alcohol from parents with consent.

The measure passed on a 61-33 vote and still needs to be heard in the senate.
