Responsible Alcohol Sales Act receives support

Posted: Updated:

 


GUAM - Legislation aimed at curbing underage drinking and DUI's while providing server and selling training for those handling alcohol beverages went up for a public hearing Thursday night.
Senator Dennis Rodriguez's jr. Bill 118 otherwise known as the Responsible Alcohol Sales and Service act- not only requires training for bars and restaurants but other establishments such as gas stations and mom-and-pop stores who sell alcohol.

Alcohol Beverage Control board member Lucia testified in support saying the bill is long awaited.
 
"So when you yourselves as parents or as patrons and customers of these establishments go out there, or when your children who are under 21 go out to these sites, you'll be more comfortable knowing that you got servers who've been trained to spot and to know what to do and handle situations where alcohol is present" the board member clarified.
 
Chief deputy attorney general Phil Tydingco also supported the measure saying any proactive and preventive measure is always helpful adding that DUI cases are a large category in its prosecution division.To read Bill 118, go to www.guamlegislature.com
