LAS VEGAS -- A Las Vegas mother is teaming up with a valley teen in an effort to change a Nevada law involving underage drinking.
Kimberly Caipa and 18-year-old Rose Asaf introduce State Senate Bill 464 to the State Senate Judiciary Committee Monday. SB 464, also known as 'Brady's Bill,' will give immunity to minors who were drinking if they end up having to call 911 to help a fellow teen.
"We want to stress that SB 464 addresses concerns about underage drinking by empowering young people to make the right and responsible decision to seek medical assistance without hesitation and without fear of legal consequences," said Rose Asaf, Nevada Youth Legislature.
Similar laws already exist in 23 states and the District of Columbia.
