21-only ordinance supporters pass out leaflets in Iowa City

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Election Day is Tuesday so a lot of candidates are going door-to-door asking for votes.

In Iowa City, this campaign is about the 21-and-over ordinance.

Members of the 21 Makes Sense group are passing out leaflets, asking voters to continue that ordinance.

They say the city is safer and more vibrant because of the ordinance and it's cut down on underage drinking.

"Alcohol probably damages that developmental course," said psychologist Susan Enzle, a 21 Makes Sense supporter. "Alcohol as we know even in mature people affects our sense of judgment, our ability to make intelligent decision, to avoid risky behavior."

Opponents say the ordinance failed to make a positive impact, and the downtown nightlife has remained unchanged.
