Underage drinking bill up for vote in state Senate Tuesday

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A bill to let Wisconsin taverns and liquor stores sue underage customers or their parents will be up for final legislative approval Tuesday.

The Senate will be asked to ratify a measure passed unanimously by the Assembly in May.

The Republican measure would let liquor license owners file civil suits against customers under 21 -- and if the customers are under 18, their parents or guardians would have to pay the owners up to $1,000.

The bill's supporters say it blames underage drinkers for breaking the law, and not the people who serve them.

The bill does not change any other underage drinking laws -- including the one that lets underage people drink in bars with their parents, or spouses who are at least 21.
