A bill starting to circulate at the Wisconsin State Legislature would lower the legal drinking age in the state to 19 in sharp defiance to the national regulations that all-but dictate an age of 21.  The measure is being pushed by 3 Republican lawmakers.

The effort has a reason behind it.  According to Representative Adam Jarchow of Balsam Lake:

At 19 years old, there are very few things that you cannot do.  Nineteen-year-olds have legally been an adult for one year, can enlist in the military and be sent thousands of miles away to fight, but can’t “enjoy an alcoholic beverage.

The age of 19 was chosen by Jarchow to alleviate conflicts with high school age children.
