A state lawmaker is proposing a new bill to change what he is calling a loophole in so-called “social host” ordinances after an appeals court ruled the ordinances don’t apply to private residences. 
 
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the decision reverses a fine a Fond du Lac parent faced for holding a graduation party where under aged guests were caught drinking. 
 
The judge ruled Fond du Lac’s ordinance was broader and tougher than the state’s statute, which the court found didn’t apply to private residences. 
 
State Representative Andre Jacque is looking to change the law so it applies to private residences. We’ll have more on this story tonight on Local 5 News at 6.
