The New Orleans City Council is considering an ordinance that would raise the age to enter a bar to 21 across the city, instead of the minimum age of 18 that many bars currently allow, according to our reporting partners at WWL-TV. Reporter Monica Hernandez finds that some people running Uptown college bars oppose the idea, saying it would unfairly restrict younger patrons from participating in other activities the bars offer, while other bar managers believe it would help them prevent underage drinking.
