Liquor Control Commission July Underage Compliance Report

SPRINGFIELD – In July the Illinois Liquor Control Commission (ILCC) conducted compliance checks around the state and visited 101 businesses licensed to sell liquor.  They cited 25 licensees for violations of liquor control laws.  Seventy-five percent of the licensees visited complied with Illinois liquor laws and refused to serve underage customers.

This report is a result of ongoing undercover and cooperative law enforcement operations conducted by Illinois Liquor Control Commission (ILCC) agents and local law enforcement officials and volunteers from high schools and colleges.  The teams randomly visit liquor stores, restaurants and bars in communities around the state to check for ongoing compliance with state laws mandating that no liquor is sold to minors under the age of 21.
