Social Host Bill Signed Into Law

March 15, 2014, 6:18 PM by Leland Steva

Social Host Bill Signed Into Law

Senate Bill 163, now signed into law, will increase penalties for adults who host underage drinking parties.

Joyce Glynn, who has fought for this issue for years, was next to Governor Dennis Daugaard when he signed the bill into law yesterday. Glynn lost her son Michael, who was killed driving home drunk from a party eight years ago. She hopes the law will help curb underage consumption in the future.

“With this social host bill there could be a situation where everyone involved in breaking that basic law will be held responsible,” Glynn said.

There was a bill on this issue last year that shot down. That bill went after adults who should have known about underage drinking on their property, which wasn't included in this year's bill.
