Governor balks at ID checks for liquor

Governor Charles Turnbull said he will veto legislation requiring club and bar owners to check the IDs of all customers, young and old alike.  Sen. Terrence “Positive” Nelson
said his proposal would reduce teenage drinking.  Turnbull said it
would be “an additional burden … on small establishments that do not
have the necessary staff to cover all aspects of the operation,” the St. John Source reported.”

  1. Governer Turnbill is acting irresponsibly by putting the interests of club and bar owners over the need to reduce teenage drinking. The ‘necessary staff’ consists of waiters or waitresses who check IDs when the order is given. This is common practice on the mainland US.
