Drunk Driving: Romney Responds

Governor Romney has responded to the drunk driving bill passed by the House and Senate last week by sending three proposed amendments back with the bill. These amendments: 1) allow "prosecutors to introduce certified copies of court, registry, department of corrections or probation documents to prove that a repeat offender has been previously convicted of drunk driving," 2) "restore the provision tightening license suspensions imposed for drivers who repeatedly refuse to submit to a breathalyzer test," and 3) "reinstate the mandatory minimum 5 year jail sentence for anyone found guilty of manslaughter by motor vehicle."
