Members Making News January 20-26

A collection of media coverage of our Caucus members this week.

 

 

 

  • In response the Washington County Delegation planning to introduce legislation addressing temporary liquor licenses as well as other various liquor issues, Delegate Neil Parrott spoke about issues of introducing legislation that would revise the penalties of individuals who sell alcohol to minors. Delegate Parrott said that one issue was that new legislation would give penalties to those who actually sold alcohol to minors while the other issue was to figure out a way to prevent the liquor board from penalizing the license holder who employed an individual accused of selling alcohol to a minor until/if the employee is convicted of the crime.
