New: CO senator’s ‘Drinking With Dad’ bill rejected

DENVER — A proposal to allow Coloradans between 18 and 21 to drink alcohol with their parents has been overwhelmingly rejected.

The so-called “Drinking With Dad” bill from a Republican senator would have allowed parents to buy alcohol for their children at Colorado bars and restaurants if they were 18 and older but not 21 yet.

Sen. Greg Brophy said his proposal would have helped parents teach adult children how to drink responsibly in public. A similar law exists in Wisconsin.

A Senate committee disagreed Wednesday, voting 4-1 against Brophy’s “Drinking With Dad” bill.

Yet, our government (state & federal) have no qualms about sending our 18 year old sons to a foreign country to DIE for their country. But, they can’t have a beer with their father.  Wow. Now that is teaching responsibility.
