This report, mandated by Act 85 of 2006, was compiled by the Pennsylvania Liquor ControlBoard (PLCB) to serve as a resource for the General Assembly detailing the current status of underage alcohol drinking and high-risk college alcohol drinking throughout theCommonwealth. However, the development of this report would not have been possible withoutthe collaboration of other state agencies with the PLCB’s Bureau of Alcohol Education. It is for this reason the PLCB gratefully acknowledges the assistance from the following state agencies:
 
Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency
 
Pennsylvania Department of Education
 
Pennsylvania Department of Health, Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Programs
 
Pennsylvania Department of Transportation
 
Pennsylvania State Police, Bureau of Liquor Control EnforcementAs a result of these collaborative efforts and the utilization of science-based and effectiveprograms, Pennsylvania continues to be viewed as a national leader in the prevention of high-risk and underage use of alcohol.
