SACRAMENTO  (AP) — Operators of so-called "party buses" would bear legal responsibility for drinking by underage passengers under a bill that responds to several recent tragedies.

AB45 would hold party bus operators to the same standards as limousine drivers. It requires them to have a chaperone to make sure underage passengers don't drink and makes them liable if passengers break the law.

Violations would be misdemeanors and could merit civil penalties by the California Public Utilities Commission, which regulates limousines, shuttles and buses.
