ATLANTA -- The National Automatic Merchandising Association reports that Georgia Rep. Chuck Sims (R-Dist. 169) has introduced a measure in the state's General Assembly that would require dealers who sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on retail premises to make "alcohol sensors" available for purchase by their patrons. The sensors are to be designed so that patrons are able to voluntarily test their personal alcohol consumption levels.

The measure, HB 1307, also authorizes dealers to provide alcohol sensor vending machines as a means of satisfying the bill's requirements. If they chose this option, they would not be permitted to charge more than $1 per patron for use of the machine.

The measure states that liability will not be imputed to dealers for complying with the bill's requirements (i.e., by having the alcohol sensor vending machine on their premises) and will not be required to monitor the results of patrons' sensor tests.
