Yesterday the Assembly Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety
held public hearings for three OWI related bills, including one I am the
lead co-sponsor of. The testimony on these bills was emotional, and I
will keep you updated as these bills move through the legislative
Bill 97: Mandatory period of confinement for homicide by intoxicated
use of a vehicle and providing a criminal penalty.
Bill 98: Court orders regarding the installation of an ignition
interlock device and providing a criminal penalty.
Bill 99: committing a fifth or sixth offense related to operating a
vehicle while intoxicated and providing a criminal penalty.
Wednesday there will be a public hearing on a bill I authored,
Assembly Bill 163. This bill would make November 11th, Veterans Day,
a recognized state holiday. Some constituents have already contacted me
about testifying, and I look forward to seeing you at the hearing!
