LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Party buses could lose the image as a safe haven for binge drinking under a measure proposed in the Nebraska Legislature.

Sen. Jeremy Nordquist of Omaha introduced a bill Tuesday that would create liquor licenses for limousines, charter buses and pedal-pub vehicles.

The bill would treat these vehicles the same as airlines or train cars, which are subject to liquor regulations and have legal responsibilities for their passengers.

Nordquist says party buses operate in an unregulated environment and encourage underage drinking. In October, a Lincoln college student was struck and killed while walking along Interstate 80 after riding a party bus.
