Senate OKs scaled-back DUI legislation

Metro

OLYMPIA, Wash. –  A revised plan designed to strengthen Washington’s DUI law is on its way to the House after gaining approval in the Senate.

The legislation would require a driver charged with a second DUI to face mandatory booking into jail.

However, it doesn’t include an initial proposal to increase minimum jail times for repeat DUI offenders.

The House is scheduled to vote on the measure today.
