Report to Congress on the Prevention and Reduction of Underage Drinking

In 2006, Congress enacted the Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking Act (STOP Act), Public Law 109-422. It was reauthorized in 2016 as part of the 21st Century Cures Act. Among other provisions, the STOP Act calls for the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking (ICCPUD), to submit an annual Report to Congress on the consequences of underage drinking and Federal and State policies to prevent and reduce it.
