CO senator's 'Drinking With Dad' bill faces vote
Colorado proposal to allow people between 18 and 21 to drink alcohol with their parents is up for its first review Wednesday.
The so-called "Drinking With Dad" bill from a Republican senator would allow 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 will defend his proposal Wednesday in a Senate committee known for rejecting GOP bills. Brophy says he thought of the proposal because he and his wife recently took their daughter to dinner to celebrate her 20th birthday, and she couldn't have a drink with them.
A similar law exists in Wisconsin.
