A measure moving through the Tennessee legislature would stop those convicted of DUI from buying alcohol.

Offenders would have their driver's license marked to prohibit the sale of alcohol, but that wouldn't be implemented until 2020.

A first offense would ban them for a year, two years for the second offense, six years for a third, and eight years for a fourth offense.

If signed into law, it would go into effect July 1. A Finance, Ways & Means Subcommittee will pick it back up on March 28.
