Nine Eastern Washington Businesses Sold Alcohol To Minors During Compliance Checks

OLYMPIA, Wash. - On January 31 and February 3, nine Eastern Washington businesses failed liquor compliance checks conducted by the Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB). Liquor enforcement officers checked 12 businesses for sales/service of alcohol to minors.

The nine businesses were cited for selling alcohol to investigative aides working with officers.

Compliance checks
The WSLCB regularly conducts compliance checks of area businesses licensed to sell alcohol. These businesses include restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores, neighborhood markets, taverns, wine bars and sports/entertainment facilities. Compliance checks are proven tools to reduce the sale of alcohol to minors.

Investigative aides assist officers with compliance checks. These individuals are from 18 to 20 years old. They must either present their true identification or none at all if asked by a clerk.

Officers are empowered to issue Administrative Violation Notices to businesses that fail compliance checks. Fines or temporary license suspensions can be issued depending on the severity of the infraction or the frequency with which a business has been cited.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures. It became even more complicated when the Washington Supreme Court overturned a Thurston County judges decision after the judge initially threw out over 300,000 signatures saying the petition didn't follow election law claiming it was unreadable.
