WA Limits Placed On Booze Self-Check-Outs
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- Gov. Jay Inslee has approved a change to state law that requires retailers to place stringent controls over alcohol sales at self-checkout machines. Under the new law, supermarkets would require self-checkout machines to freeze transactions involving alcohol sales until a worker verifies the buyer is at least 21 years old. The measure passed unanimously through both the House and Senate amid concerns that underage shoppers were able to purchase liquor without scrutiny.
