Banning Alcohol On The Illinois River

Updated:
There is a move to prohibit alcohol on some areas of the Illinois River in eastern Oklahoma.

The river is a popular summertime spot for tens of thousands of people who swim, fish and float on rafts and canoes.

The Oklahoma Scenic Rivers Commission will consider whether to ban alcohol on state-controlled areas of the river because of a series of problems during the Memorial Day weekend.

The measure would not affect canoe operators' right to sell alcohol or allow consumption on their property.
