Vermont Alcohol and Crime Briefs

April 2010

The Vermont state legislature is currently considering a resolution to ask for Congressional permission to lower the state’s legal drinking age to 18 without suffering a reduction in federal highway funding. The resolution does not actually seek to lower the drinking age but rather to evaluate the consequences of doing so, according to state Rep. David Zuckerman, P-Burlington, who sponsored the resolution. In 2008 the legislature killed a bill aimed at lowering the drinking age.
