Rep. Waters discusses his bill that would even the sentencing standards for selling to a minor


Rep. Waters, R-Stevenson, talks about his bill that would bring fairness to a situation that lacks equity. Under current law, when a store clerk sells alcohol to a minor they can be charged with a criminal penalty. If a restaurant worker or someone that serves alcohol sells to a minor, they are given a fine. Under this bill, the LCB could impose a civil penalty for the store clerk instead of issuing a criminal citation.
