DUI Bill Rejected by House Judiciary Committee

HB1189, discussed below, was defeated in the House Judiciary Committee March 7. The bill, which would have mandated interlock devices on vehicles driven by those convicted of DUI/DWAI and greatly increased driver's license suspensions following such convictions, lost on a 7-4 vote. The failure of this bill does not spell the end of the effort to change Colorado's DUI laws--a state "DUI Task Force" commissioned by the General Assembly is expected to make recommendations later this year on how to improve the current DUI statutes, most of which have been in place for over twenty years.
