Tell Governor Brown to Veto SB 31--NO Alcohol Ads Outside Stadiums

Story 1 Image

Senator Alex Padilla's SB 31 will allow large, flashing alcohol displays on public property outside sports stadiums, visible to residents and passing motorists.

California State Senator Alex Padilla's Senate Bill 31 would allow beer, wine, and spirits ads to blight public property, and subject Los Angeles residents and passing motorists to bright, flashing billboards and other displays in the vicinity of sports arenas and stadiums. The Padilla bill undermines years of work by community and public health activists to eliminate alcohol advertising on public property in L.A. Exposure to alcohol advertising leads youth to drink earlier and more often, and alcohol-related harm already costs California $38 billion annually. Tell Governor Brown to take a stand for public health and veto SB 31.
