NBWA Applauds Reauthorization of STOP Underage Drinking Act

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Today, the U.S. Senate passed the 21st Century Cures Act, a broad health care bill which dedicates more than $6 billion to implement key priorities for the Administration and Congress and reauthorizes the Sober Truth on Preventing (STOP) Underage Drinking Act. The U.S. House of Representatives passed the bill on November 30 with broad bipartisan support, and President Obama is expected to sign it into law.

The National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) worked closely with industry and public health partners to gain support for reauthorization of the legislation. In November, NBWA participated in meetings with key House and Senate staff and sent a letter along with industry partners to the House Energy and Commerce Committee to urge a hearing and passage of the STOP Act.
