Underage Drinking & the Law

What parents need to know now about the new Social Host Laws

NY City considers a Social Host Law

20120607-181329.jpg
News Alert: According to today’s Queens Chronicle paper, Councilmen James Vacca (D-Bronx) and Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Astoria) proposed a Social Host Law to the City Council last week “which would make it illegal for any adult who owns, rents or otherwise controls a private home to permit underage drinking.”

This is Councilman Vallone’s second attempt to get a city-wide Social Host Law passed despite admitting that “big house parties haven’t been a problem in the city. It’s more of a rural phenomenon,” the Queens Chronicle article quotes Vallone. He adds that he believes it’s important to get in front of the problem rather than just react to it.

We’ll continue to follow this story closely. For more information about Social Host Laws, visit our FAQs or the Social Host Law Primer
