Washington State Senate Passes Rules on Self-Checkout for Liquor

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. -  A measure meant to stop underage alcohol sales at self-checkout machines is on it's way to Governor Jay Inslee's desk.

The Senate approved the  measure unanimously on Wednesday.

The bill would require self-checkout machines at supermarkets to freeze transactions involving liquor sales until a worker verifies the buyer is at least 21 years old.
    
The measure unanimously passed the House in February.
