NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A 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 sponsored by Republican Rep. John Holsclaw Jr. on a voice vote on Tuesday. The companion bill had been awaiting a vote on the Senate floor.

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 15 years.

The measure would have required affected drivers to pay the $12 to include the language on their licenses. Critics noted that the bill would not affect alternative ID like passports and that separate legislation seeks to do away with universal carding requirements for people who look over 50.
