PHOENIX - Among the 16 bills Gov. Doug Ducey signed into Arizona law on Tuesday is one that allows legal drinkers to use any valid license from any state to buy alcohol again.
House Bill 2031 overturned a law passed in 2014 that stated persons over 21 years old must have a horizontal driver's license in order to enter a bar and to buy alcohol -- even if over the legal drinking age.
Vertical identification cards are issued to those 21 and younger in Arizona and some other states across the country.
The previous law had been a thorn in the side of many recently-turned-21-year-olds, especially those with out-of-state IDs. The bill included an emergency clause that made the change effective immediately.
