LICENSE REVOCATION AMENDMENTS
House Bill 5533 (Substitute H-2)
Sponsor: Rep. Paul Condino
Complete to 5-12-08
A SUMMARY OF HOUSE BILL 5533 AS REPORTED FROM COMMITTEE 5-1-08
The bill would amend the Michigan Vehicle Code. Currently, the code requires the revocation of a driver or chauffeur license for any combination of three convictions within 10 years of certain alcohol-related driving offenses. These include, generally speaking, operating while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or a controlled substance; operating while visibly impaired; operating with an unlawful bodily alcohol content; and operating a commercial vehicle with certain alcohol content.
House Bill 5533 would eliminate the reference to the 10-year period, meaning three convictions of the listed offenses over any length of time would lead to license revocation. The bill would take effect October 31, 2010.
This bill would have no significant fiscal impact on state or local government.
Department of State Police supports the bill. (5-1-08)
Secretary of State is neutral on the bill. (5-1-08)
