A Bay Area lawmaker wants to crack down on party bus companies that allow underage drinking.

Assemblyman Jerry Hill is sponsoring a bill that would fine bus companies that fail to monitor the ages of passengers and the amount of alcohol they bring on board.

Bus drivers who don’t comply could face fines or misdemeanor charges.

The bill is named in memory of 19-year-old Brett Studebaker.

Studebaker died in a car crash on Highway 101 in San Mateo after he spent hours drinking on a “booze cruise” party bus.

The party bus bill faces a crucial committee vote today in Sacramento.
