Governor vetoes bill to change DUIlaws

May 2008
Inside Tucson Business;5/5/2008, Vol. 17 Issue 48, p4
The article reports on Governor Janet Napolitano's veto of a bill which covers driving and boating DUIs in Arizona on April 29, 2008. Napolitano finds the move untimely because the DUI law has only taken affect since 2007. The bill reduces the required period that a first-time DUI offender would have to use a breath-test ignition device after conviction. It also requires the immediate suspension of an erring motorist's license.
