House Bill Would Restore 4th Amendment Rights in DUI Revocation Proceedings

HB13-1077, sponsored by State Rep. Joe Salazar (D-Adams Co.), would reverse the appellate court rulings discussed below that held that the State could still revoke the license of a DUI suspect even if the officer did not have valid grounds to pull over the vehicle.  Salazar, himself an attorney, is a freshman legislator and vice-chair of the House State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee.
