Senate Bill 1308 — Liquor, serving, age

Senate Bill 1308 — Liquor, serving, age

Parrish Miller
February 15, 2022

Bill Description: Senate Bill 1308 would change the minimum age for employees who may serve alcohol on the job by lowering it from 19 to 17. 

Rating: +1

Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market? Conversely, does it eliminate or reduce government intervention in the market?

Idaho law regulates the minimum age of employees who "sell, serve, possess or dispense liquor, beer or wine in the course of their employment." The current minimum age is 19. 

Senate Bill 1308 would amend four sections of Idaho Code to reduce this minimum age to 17. (This change would have no impact on the requirement that consumers of alcohol be at least age 21.) 

This is a minor change that does not reduce the number of regulations facing sellers of alcohol, but it does make the regulation somewhat less burdensome and provides greater employment opportunities for young adults.
