OLYMPIA, Wash. —

Gov. Jay Inslee has signed into law a measure to allow 18-year-olds to taste - and spit out - alcohol in certain classroom settings.

Signed into law Tuesday, the bill allows community and technical colleges to offer alcohol to students as part of a culinary or alcohol-technology degree program.

Senate Bill 5774 passed the Senate by a vote of 42-7 in March. Earlier this month, it advanced from the House by an 89-4 vote.

The measure will take effect in July.
