Bars to restrict admittance of minors
Sept. 29, 1983 – State Rep. Stanley Stopcyznski (D-Detroit), chairman of the state House Liquor Control committee, said yesterday he is confident bars will soon allow only those 21 and older into their establishments.
State law presently states that individuals aged 18 to 20 years can enter a bar as long as they don’t drink. The proposed change would require them to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Rep. Jelt Stietsem (D-Wyoming) proposed the new legislation, saying parents, rather than bars, should bear the burden of monitoring underage drinking. Whether or not the law changes, it is unclear if bars will abide by the new rule. Tom Orbring, bar manager at the University Club, said underage drinking is not a problem.
“If a person can vote and be drafted, he should be allowed to go into a bar,” he said.
Marshall Greenhut, manager of Second Chance, agreed. “It’s the people over 21 who buy for minors that cause the peoplem,” he said. “If someone wants to get alcohol, they will. This won’t solve the problem.”
