MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Assembly is set to vote on a bill that would allow minors to enter a winery alone if they're going to tour the business.
Current state law prohibits anyone under 21 from entering or being on the premises of any establishment with a retail alcohol sales license without a parent, guardian or spouse. The bipartisan bill would permit people under the legal drinking age to enter winery banquet and hospitality rooms alone if they're participating in a tour.
The Senate passed the measure earlier this week. The Assembly is set to take it up Thursday.
Approval would send the bill on to Gov. Scott Walker. The governor's spokesman didn't immediately return a message inquiring about whether Walker supports the proposal.
