At Tuesday's meeting, the Laguna Beach City Council is expected to officially introduce the controversial social-host ordinance, which would fault parents for underage drinking that goes on in parents' homes. Fines ranging from $500 for a first offense to $1,000 for a third offense will be proposed. This will be the ordinance's first reading, and a second reading will be required before a date is set for the law would go into effect, pending passage.
