Bills before the Legislature--Online locator

UPDATE: The bill to increase the penalties for careless drivers who kill or injure is alive again as SB 290.

Here is the master link. For your ranting and raving pleasure.

HB 32 and 31, which would have toughened penalties against predicate drunk drivers, were tabled by the Democratic members of the House Consumer and Public Affairs committee, citing the cost of keeping repeat DWIs incarcerated. See the Journal article for the story.

House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee.

Costs of a traffic fatality. I wonder if the House committee did the math right.

If imprisonment costs too much, they should sell their car at government auction and ban them from driving for life. That would pay for itself.
