An east Tennessee lawmaker wants to make it more difficult for DUI offenders to buy alcohol by putting a mark on their driver’s license.
State Representative Bud Hulsey will be in Nashville this week to propose the new bill.
When someone is convicted of a DUI, Hulsey wants a red strip across the license for three years that says they can’t buy alcohol.
The bill would also include a misdemeanor charge for anyone who sells alcohol to that person.
The new session for the General Assembly starts January 9th.
