Nebraska Senators Delay Compliance Legislation

 LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ A bill that would prohibit minors working
with police from lying about their age during alcohol sale
compliance checks in Nebraska has been put on ice until April.

     Lawmakers have delayed action on the measure until the end of
the legislative session.

     The move takes the issue off the table, but leaves wiggle room
for lawmakers to bring it back.

     State Senator Bob Krist of Omaha says he accomplished what he
wanted: to draw public attention to the way police mishandle
compliance checks and treat business owners unfairly.

     He says the state Liquor Commission has agreed to create a
summer training program for law enforcement so police will follow
the rules when checking to see whether businesses illegally sell
booze to minors.
