LB734, introduced by Omaha Sen. Megan Hunt, requires companies that operate special party buses to obtain an annual license from the state Liquor Control Commission. The commission may suspend, revoke or cancel the license. A one-year license will cost $75.

Enforcement inspections of special party buses are limited to times when patrons are entering or exiting the stopped vehicle.

LB734 passed on a 42-0 vote.
