MORRIS PARK - State lawmakers are proposing tougher laws after the largest underage sting operation in state history found dozens of stores selling alcohol to minors.

The undercover operation found 26 stores in the Bronx selling alcohol to minors.

The "Card Hard Package" would encourage stores to get ID scanners to help them weed out fake IDs. The laws would also give store workers the legal right to confiscate fake IDs from minors.

Fines for underage sales currently range from $2,500 for a first time offense to $10,000.
