BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - As the fall semester begins, the Governor announced continued efforts to crack down on underage drinking on college campuses and in college towns.
You guessed it: they're looking for fake IDs and illegal sales to minors.
The New York State Liquor Authority, NYS DMV, and local police will conduct statewide sweeps on places with liquor licenses like bars, liquor stores, grocery stores, and restaurants.
Governor Cuomo said, "As the new college semester begins, this crackdown will help to put an end to underage drinking and hold accountable those who enable it."
He said sweeps will begin immediately as college students return to campus.
Federal officials report:
Under 21-ers found using fake IDs with intent to buy alcohol can be arrested and have their license revoked for 90 days to a year.
