“19- and 20-year-olds get privileges”
From a column in the Knik Arm Courier, July 19, 1970:
19- and 20-year-olds are gaining new privileges and responsibilities in a law signed last month by Gov. Keith H. Miller. This age group will take on the responsibilities of jury duty and be removed from the jurisdiction of the juvenile courts. For the first time, 19- and 20-year-olds can act as incorporators of corporations and serve as special law enforcement officers.
Under the provisions of this law, the 19-year-old can also work in a licensed establishment and purchase intoxicating beverages. The provisions of the bill become effective on Sept. 25, 1970.
