GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL ROUNDUP: Committee to debate not punishing drinkers if they seek help for their intoxicated friends

A Wisconsin Senate committee will hold a public hearing Wednesday on a bill that would not punish underage drinkers if they seek help for their intoxicated friends. The bill ran into opposition at an earlier Assembly hearing, when police officials expressed concerns about restrictions on their enforcement efforts. The bill's supporters say underage campus drinkers are refusing to tell police about sexual assaults and other crimes they see, so they don't get in trouble themselves.
