Representatives from TABC will visit liquor stores, bars, beaches and other places that sell alcohol in March.
Activities planned for 2021 include covert operations, where TABC agents covertly monitor business operations for compliance, as well as increased efforts to ensure compliance with COVID-19 guidelines in bars and restaurants across the state.
Companies that sell alcohol to anyone under the age of 21 could face a fine or suspension of their license to sell alcohol. Employees conducting the sale could also be charged with a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $ 4,000 and a prison term of up to one year.
Most of the operations will take place in and around cities with major colleges or universities and popular destinations along the Texas Gulf Coast.
Other operations will be conducted during the spring break, including investigating suspected organized crime such as human trafficking, drug trafficking and money laundering.
