Guam - With cheers from the public hearing room, all 15 senators voted in favor of legislation that increase the legal drinking age on Guam from 18 to 21. Bill 389 was named after Ramon Oberiano, who was riding his bike along Marine Corps Drive in Piti when he was killed by a 22-year-old drunk driver in 2006.
Senators meanwhile also voted in favor of passing Bill 356, which would change the hours of when alcohol can be sold - specifically after 2 in the morning and 8am. Bill 357 also passed, which would stiffen penalties and fines for those caught selling alcohol after hours.
The bills now head to Adelup for Governor Felix Camacho' review.
