OLYMPIA, Wash. - A measure to allow 18-year-olds to taste - and spit out - alcohol in certain classroom settings has been signed into law. Gov. Jay Inslee signed the bill into law Tuesday.
The bill allows community and technical colleges to offer alcohol to students as part of a culinary or alcohol-technology degree program. Senate Bill 5774 passed the Senate by a vote of 42-7 in March. Earlier this month, it advanced from the House by an 89-4 vote. The measure will take effect in July.
