California Underage Drinking Bill

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — Under a new bill passed by the state legislature, adults who provide alcohol to minors at social gatherings could be held liable if the minors are injured or killed.

According to the Associated Press, AB-2486 would add California to the list of states that impose potential “social host” liability on adults who knowingly serve alcohol to underage guests. The alcohol would have to be the main cause of injury.

Opponents argue that adults 18-20 years of age should be accountable for their actions. Supporters say it would deter adults from promoting underage drinking and reduce alcohol related deaths.  The Assembly on Monday voted 67-1 to approve the legislation, sending it to the governor’s desk.
