Mankato bartenders may take breath tests

With new liquor laws passed, the City of Mankato may penalize bars and restaurants if their bartenders have a blood alcohol level higher than .04, the same limit as airplane pilots.

John Reinan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Employee breath testing isn’t intended to be routine, said Jay Reasner, operating partner of Pub 500, a popular downtown Mankato bar. It’s more likely to be reserved for times when there’s an incident at a bar — a fight, for example — and officials question whether the staff was in the proper frame of mind to handle it.
