Proposal To Ban Alcohol Sales To People With Multiple DUI’s Fails

DUIA House panel has defeated a proposal to ban alcohol sales to people with three or more drunken driving convictions. The House budget subcommittee rejected the measure on a voice vote this week. The bill would have required the words “No Alcohol Sales” be printed on the license of people with at least three DUI convictions for between five and fifteen years. The measure would have required affected drivers to pay the $12 to include the language on the licenses. Critics noted that the bill would not affect alternate ID’s like passports, and that separate legislation seeks to do away with universal carding requirements for people who look over 50.
