Restaurants and bars that generate at least 50 percent of their revenues from alcohol sales would be required to buy server-liability insurance under a measure being considered in the Texas legislature.

At least $500,000 in coverage for personal injury and $1 million in general coverage would be required of each establishment, according to the bill, which was introduced by Rep. Charles Turner (D-Grand Prairie).

The requirement would take effect on Sept. 1.
