DENVER, Colorado -

A Republican lawmaker from Colorado is proposing a law that would allow parents to buy alcohol for their adult children at bars and restaurants.

The law would apply to young adults ages 18-20.  Senator Greg Brophy is introducing the bill for the legislative session that begins Wednesday. He thought of the proposal after he and his wife took their daughter to dinner to celebrate her 20th birthday. She was not able to have a drink with them.

As part of the proposal, Brophy wants parents of returning servicemen to be able to buy their children drinks at bars or restaurants.

Brophy says the bill would allow parents to buy their adult children drinks in any place that allows on-premise alcohol consumption.

Wisconsin has a similar law.
