Additions and Enhancements   

Site Restructuring - As of this update, APIS no longer includes excerpts of statutory or regulatory text in the APIS Policy Topics section of the APIS Web site. Citations to enacted bills, codified statutes, and codified regulations are included, however, for users interested in researching the legal sources that support the coding of APIS policy topic variables.    
A link to the Alcohol Epidemiologic Data Directory has been added to the Researchers section of the APIS Home Page.  This link provides a source of data that can be used to measure the outcomes of policy change.  
Corrections and Clarifications  
The comparison tables listed below have been changed to reflect changes made in data.
