DUI Bill Backers Press Senate for Action

For the past two years, state Rep. Dennis Keene, D-Wilder, has filed legislation in the Kentucky General Assembly to require ignition interlock devices in the vehicles of drunken driving offenders.

The bill unanimously passed the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives with bipartisan support last year, only to die in the Republican-led Senate without a committee hearing.

Supporters of the measure are trying to ensure it doesn’t meet the same fate this year after passing out of the House Feb. 8 by a vote of 95-0.

On Thursday, they will hold a press conference and rally to publicly call upon the Senate to take up the bill.

It begins at noon in Room 346 of the Capitol Annex.
