DUI Bill Clears House

Cheyenne, WY – It could become easier to get a felony for multiple drinking and driving offenses.

The house passed the measure that would make it a felony for a third DUI conviction in a seven-year span.
Not everyone likes the idea.

Laramie Democrat Jane Warren does not agree with the argument that enhanced penalties will convince a person to stop drinking and driving.

Warren would prefer more prevention efforts. She amended the bill to make it easier for some people to get assessments after a DUI. The bill now heads to the senate.
