Please include the following statement from State Rep. Greg Steuerwald (R-Avon), the author of House Bill 1325, in coverage of the bill:
STATEHOUSE - "House Bill 1325 does not repeal the fact that it is a crime to sell alcohol to a minor. When we enact legislation that is contrary to common sense, we lose the respect of the public. I believe this bill introduces common sense to a reasonable solution.
"House Bill 1325 maintains the fact that it is illegal to sell alcohol to a minor, but a person who is reasonably believed to be over 40 years of age does not have to be carded. Also, retailers are permitted to maintain their policy to card every patron regardless of age if they desire."
