NASHVILLE (AP) - Tennessee's first-in-the-country universal carding requirement for anyone buying beer would be extended indefinitely under a bill headed for a Senate vote.

Sen. Joe Haynes, a Goodlettsville Democrat, is sponsoring the bill to remove a July 1 expiration date for the law that requires a picture ID for anyone buying beer at a supermarket or convenience store.

The rule applies to all customers, regardless of how old they are. But it does not apply to liquor and wine sales.

The Senate State and Local Government Committee unanimously advanced the measure to a full Senate vote on Tuesday. The companion bill has yet to be considered in the equivalent House committee.
