Committee Disbanding In La Crosse?
Will anybody miss La Crosse's Alcohol Oversight Committee, if it's
discontinued by the city council?
Probably not, says Brenda Rooney from Gundersen Lutheran. Rooney is a member of a coalition on risky drinking behavior, which issued a report last year on the 'burden' of binge drinking. Rooney thinks progress has been made since last fall. She points out a new law passed by the Onalaska City Council.
Rooney wants to see more efforts to cut down on alcohol abuse at over a dozen annual festivals in the La Crosse area...and at house parties in local college neighborhoods.
