A proposal to allow Coloradans between 18 and 21 to drink alcohol with their parents has been overwhelmingly rejected.
The so-called "Drinking With Dad" bill from a Republican senator would have allowed parents to buy alcohol for their children at Colorado bars and restaurants if they were 18 and older but not 21 yet.
Sen. Greg Brophy said his proposal would have helped parents teach adult children how to drink responsibly in public. A similar law exists in Wisconsin.
A Senate committee disagreed Wednesday, voting 4-1 against Brophy's "Drinking With Dad" bill.
