North Texas lawmakers plan to try again to introduce a sobriety checkpoints bill in the new legislative session.
Similar legislation failed in earlier sessions. The checkpoints have been banned since 1994.
That bill, which passed the Senate but was never voted on in House, would have allowed sobriety stops in cities with populations over 500,000 or for sheriff's departments that operate in counties with more than 250,000 people.
The Legislature reconvenes in January.
