A bill that would allow minors in bars under certain circumstances created some small town versus big town debate in the state House on Monday.


House Bill 1307 would allow minors in bars if they are there to eat, if the bar serves tabletop food prepared in a kitchen with at least an indoor grill and if the bar is smoke-free.

The bill passed with a 50-42 vote, despite a do-not pass recommendation from the Human Services Committee.
