(Neb.)- Bill Would Allow Bars To Accept Out-Of-State IDs

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 02/01/2013 10:48 AM
      LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A bill that would allow Nebraska bars and liquor stores to accept out-of-state identification cards when selling alcohol has won first-round approval in the Legislature.
     Lawmakers voted 30-0 on Friday to advance the measure. The bill was introduced by Sen. Colby Coash of Lincoln.
     Current law allows sellers to accept a valid driver's or operator's license, a Nebraska state identification card, a military identification card, an alien registration card or a passport when confirming that a buyer is legally permitted to purchase alcohol. The current wording doesn't allow for out-of-state identification cards.
     The bill requires two more votes before it goes to the governor.
