CURRAN TO SPEAK TO NATIONAL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
ATTORNEY GENERAL WILL ADDRESS UNDERAGE DRINKING ENFORCEMENT

On Friday, August 25, 2006, Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr. will be the keynote speaker at the National Liquor Law Enforcement Association’s 20th Annual Conference in Baltimore. This conference is being hosted in conjunction with the 7th Annual Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws National Leadership Conference, sponsored by the U.S. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Curran is scheduled to speak at a noon Law Enforcement Awards luncheon.

Mr. Curran has a long history of protecting Maryland children, and he is a staunch supporter of law enforcement’s efforts to curb underage drinking. As a member of the National Association of Attorneys General Youth Access to Alcohol Committee, earlier this year Curran called on the Federal Trade Commission to take a hard look at the role alcohol marketing plays in promoting underage consumption.

Attorney General Curran plans to discuss how the lessons learned from the historic Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) with Big Tobacco to prevent youth smoking can be applied to the equally daunting task of preventing underage alcohol abuse.

This conference brings together more than 1,500 law enforcement professionals, youth, community-based advocates, and local, state, and federal government officials concerned about issues related to underage drinking.
