OLYMPIA, Wash.  -- Lawmakers have approved a measure meant to stop underage alcohol sales at self-checkout machines.

The measure, approved unanimously Wednesday by the Senate, would require self-checkout machines at supermarkets to freeze transactions involving liquor sales until a worker verifies the buyer is at least 21 years old.

The measure unanimously passed the House in February and now heads to Gov. Jay Inslee.
