A bill that would allow Nebraska bars and liquor stores to accept out-of-state identification cards when selling alcohol won first-round approval in the Legislature Friday.

Lawmakers voted 30-0 to advance LB 173. The bill was introduced by Sen. Colby Coash of Lincoln.

Current law allows sellers to accept a valid driver's or operator's license, a Nebraska state identification card, a military identification card, an alien registration card or a passport when confirming that a buyer is legally permitted to purchase alcohol. The current wording doesn't allow for out-of-state identification cards.

The bill requires two more votes before it goes to the governor.
