03 - 07 - 2012 Corman’s Problem Drinking Bill Passes Committee
The Senate Judiciary Committee passed legislation sponsored by Sen. Jake Corman aimed at reducing problematic drinking by increasing maximum fines & accessing a fee that will go towards prevention measures. Senator Corman was joined at the committee meeting by State College Borough Police Chief Tom King, to advocate for the passage of the bills. Corman said, "Drinking violations are a burden across the Commonwealth, but in college & university settings such as State College, the problem is crippling," stated Corman. "I engaged a working group to discuss ways to try to reduce the instances of alcohol violations, & these 2 bills represent what we feel are the right steps moving forward."
