CU Bars in the News, Passing Up Money to Fight Underage Drinking

From WICD ABC 15.

Champaign- Champaign city leaders pass on a chance to get federal grant money to fight underage drinking. The city council voted on the grant opportunity last night. Some city council members didn’t like that the grant money only focused on enforcement and not education and prevention. They also worried that stronger enforcement would push people to drink in private apartments and houses which they say is more of a safety risk.
