State Council of Higher Education for Virginia

Page 177, after line 3, insert:
"I. There shall be a "zero tolerance" for underage drinking by students in state supported colleges.  The first observed offense shall require a five day suspension from school, a mandatory attendance at an alcohol treatment program and a $500 fine.  The second offense shall require a suspension for the remaining portion of that current semester and forfeiture of the right to "in-state" tuition rates to continue a program of study."

(This amendment would require a "zero tolerance" policy for underage drinking at Virginia's institutions of higher education.)
