Additions and Enhancements  
  
Update to 1/1/2006 - The research and data for the following APIS Policy Topics have been updated to include legislative and regulatory changes in effect on or before 1/1/2006:

  • Underage Possession of Alcohol
  • Underage Consumption of Alcohol
  • Underage Purchase of Alcohol
  • Furnishing Alcohol to Minors
  • Minimum Ages for On-Premises Servers and Bartenders
  • Minimum Ages for Off-Premises Sellers
  • False Identification for Obtaining Alcohol 
  • Keg Registration
  • Loss of Driving Privileges for Alcohol Violations by Minors ("Use/Lose Laws")
  • Prohibitions Against Hosting Underage Drinking Parties

 

Extension of coverage for two policy topics back to January 1, 1998 - The baseline date for the False Identification and Use/Lose coverage period was extended back to January 1, 1998. 

New False Identification variable - The comparison tables for False Identification were revised to include a new variable, Detention of Minor, in the section of the table for Retailer Support Provisions.

Corrections and Clarifications

In Loss of Driving Privileges for Alcohol Violations by Minors ("Use/Lose Laws"), APIS no longer codes for consumption violations on the basis of provisions that are limited to underage consumption on licensed premises.  As a result, check marks for Consumption (under Type of Violation Leading to License Suspension, Revocation, or Denial) were removed from the comparison tables for California, Nevada, New Jersey, and Rhode Island.

Additional changes to data presented in the comparison tables in the APIS Policy Topics section of the Web site are listed below.
