NASHVILLE (AP) - The Senate has passed a permanent extension to the state's first-in-the-country requirement to card anyone buying beer - no matter how old they are.

The bill sponsored by Sen. Joe Haynes, a Goodlettsville Democrat, was unanimously approved without debate on Monday.

The law that requires a picture ID for anyone buying beer at a supermarket or convenience store has a July 1 expiration date. The requirement does not apply to liquor and wine sales or to bars and restaurants.

The companion bill is scheduled for a hearing in a subcommittee of the House State and Local Government Committee on Wednesday.
