Should Party Buses Be Regulated Like Bars?!

Posted on January 23, 2015
LINCOLN, Neb. — If party buses operate like bars on wheels, they should be regulated like bars on main street.

That’s the argument behind a bill introduced Jan. 20 in the Nebraska Legislature that would require party buses and limousines to obtain liquor licenses before allowing their passengers to drink alcohol.

    A bus like that would be really fun, but I do see why some legislators would be concerned if there were any people included who were under the legal drinking age. Still, for something like a wedding, younger people still should be able to get in. I don't see it as being any different from them attending a wedding where alcohol is served. The only difference seems to be that it is a more confined space. Yvon Lebras |
