Daniels signs measure changing Indiana alcohol ID law

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels has signed several new more bills into law, including one that will no longer require everyone buying carryout alcohol to show identification regardless of age.

Daniels signed the law Friday that states only those appearing younger than age 40 must be carded, starting July 1. Current law mandates carding of all individuals.

Daniels also signed a bill requiring Indiana retailers to use a computerized tracking system to identify those buying cold medications used in making methamphetamine. Stores selling ephedrine or pseudoephedrine products will enter the identity of customers into a multistate database that limits how much a person can buy.

Daniels vetoed a bill dealing with forfeitures, saying it went against the state constitution to take much of the proceeds collected through forfeitures and use it for purposes other than a school fund.

    It's all about how you can't be trusted, your neighbor can't be trusted, you're too stupid to do anything right... So quit using your brain, do as you're told; you live in a prison, so GET YOUR ID OUT! And while you're at it, let's see your "loyal shopper" card.
  • As for the Id matter 40 years Old Come on!
    As for the ID thing....I think it should be sided with say Selective service if anything at All...old enought to Kill for your nation your old enough to Buy..this is to me is like Gun Control if the seller see's a problem they can refuse you...Besides again i think this case about buying Goods as I understand can only be done by a Act of Congress...

    Commerce in this case is more for the fact of Money and the federal Standard of , this view is a part of the views of what became the civil war and the fall out of !

    I Understand the need to been Watchfull of things...But this Move is not Constitutional, Not Ever one Buying this Stuff is in the Event seeking to carry out a crime, there for tracking such is using a law to say your guilty for a crime with out being proved to be do ing so, So this would Fall under the Guied lines of a Violation of the 5th Amendment! http://www.revolutionary-war-and-beyond.com/5th-amendment.html

    I also thing think this could be so challenged thru a tort Claim suing using Direct or Indirect Constitutional Contempt them suing a suit and laws as such as US title 42 usc section 1983, I say under the Indiana State Constitution section 12 Section 12. Openess of the courts, Speedy trial
    Section 12. All courts shall be open; and every person, for injury done to him in his person, property, or reputation, shall have remedy by due course of law. Justice shall be administered freely, and without purchase; completely, and without denial; speedily, and without delay. Could file such a case free then so fight the matter of such mised views of laws.

      I guess the ability to sell to minors is more lucrative to the alchoholic beverage lobby than the right to sell on Sundays. Or, at least, it's something that big boxes and mom and pops can agree on!
    • Stupid
      Oh, another stupid law defining the age to buy alcohol. We have one defining the age at 21. That should be enough. Showing an ID to prove you are over 40 is further proof that our state legislature is incompetent. So now the clerk is to determine if you look to be over 40 and he won't have to ask for your ID. Personally, I would like to have a job but any help from the state legislature or the governor to help increase employment opportunities is beyond their abilities. They are only capable of passing laws that deal with their social agenda. (At least this new law is meaningless as a clerk can alway say he thought the person looks to be over 40 and it eliminates people like me who are well over 40 from ever having to show my ID again.)

      1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

      2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

      3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

      4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

      5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
