House Transportation and Public Works Tables Tougher DWI sanctions

New Mexico: You Drink, You Drive, You Drink, You Drive. You Drink, You Drive. Toughest thing you do is try not to get too dizzy going through the judicial revolving door. You eventually kill, and we find out you were a repeat DWI offender.

Ad Naseum.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, the vote was 5-2 to table. Voting to table were James White (R, Albuquerque), Sharon Clahchischilliage (R-Shiprock), Sandra Jeff (D-Crownpoint), Jane Powdrell-Culbert (R-Corrales), and Anna Crook (R-Clovis).

Voting against tabling the bill were Reps. Roberto “Bobby” Gonzales (D-Taos), and Dianne Hamilton (R-Silver City).

Our own Stephanie Garcia-Richard is a co-sponsor of this bill, supported by Gov. Martinez and which has broad bipartisan support.

Article in the New Mexican as well, but not as comprehensive.
