On June 6, 2017 the recently passed Social Host Accountability Ordinance will take effect. The ordinance aims to reduce underage drinking and augments current TACB laws already place by imposing a civil penalty on violators. Social Hosts of gatherings “where alcohol is consumed by, served to or in the possession of underage persons” may be issued a Notice of Violation which can carry up to a $1,000 civil penalty.
