Lawmakers in New Hampshire have proposed a bill that would lower the drinking age to 20. There were earlier efforts to lower the age to 19 for active duty service members and 18 for people with adults but it failed. There are only 11 countries that have the drinking age set at 21 and over 100 that have it set at 18 or 19. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimated that when the United States changed the law in 1984 that I decreased fatal accidents by 13 percent for people aged 18-20. There is contrary evidence since countries with a lower drinking age have less drunk driving accidents and fatalities. This is a very relevant issue to the caucus as many students on campus are underage drinking. Should the current drinking age be kept or is it time to lower the age?
