1An Act to amend
343.301 (1g) (a) 2. a. of the statutes; relating to: restricting
2a person's operating privilege to vehicles equipped with an ignition interlock
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, if a person is convicted of a second or subsequent offense
related to operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of an intoxicant or
other drug, with a prohibited alcohol concentration, or with a measurable amount
of a controlled substance in his or her blood (OWI offense) or a first OWI offense for
which his or her alcohol concentration is 0.15 or greater, a court must order the
person's operating privilege restricted to operating vehicles that are equipped with
an ignition interlock device. This bill expands the ignition interlock requirement to
all OWI offenses that involve the use of alcohol.
For further information see the state and local fiscal estimate, which will be
printed as an appendix to this bill.
