Washington Legislature OKs Underage Alcohol Tasting Bill

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. - A measure allowing 18-year-olds to taste - and spit out - alcohol in certain classroom settings is on it's way to the governor's desk.

The Washington State House passed the measure Tuesday.
   
The bill would allow community and technical colleges to offer alcohol to students as part of a culinary or alcohol-technology degree program.
    
Senate Bill 5774 passed out of the House by a vote of 89-4 after advancing from the Senate last month.

A similar measure passed out of the House last month and has advanced to the Senate Rules Committee.
