Last December , I was asked to participate in a meeting about a proposal by the folks at the state mental health department on a DUI law . Basically , the law will give folks that are facing a DUI jail sentence for a second or third offense DUI charge to get more jail credit for treatment. The bill was proposed to several groups including MADD, the District Attorney General’s Conference , law enforcement , and other key players.
While the bill is not perfect , there are some positive changes. Here is a link to the proposed bill . I would invite your comments on the bill. It has not passed yet. So any comments might be helpful in tweaking the bill.
