Kids Can Legally Drink At Bars In These Two States
True. Kids can legally drink at bars in Wisconsin and Texas if a parent buys them the drinks. That may be about to change in Wisconsin, as reported by Jason Stein of the Milwaukee, Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.
Parents at a bar or restaurant could buy alcoholic drinks for children who are 18 years of age or older - but not those younger than that, as now allowed - under a bill passed 56-41 by the Assembly. The bill now heads to the Senate.
Under current law, patrons must be 21 to buy a drink but parents can buy drinks for their children of any age. Wisconsin and Texas are the only two states to do so. Under the bill, which is supported by the Tavern League of Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Medical Society, children under 18 can still go into bars if accompanied by a parent.Here's the source.
