Sponsor:  Froelker

This bill creates the crime of driving with an extreme blood
alcohol content (BAC).  A person commits this crime by driving
with a BAC of .15% or more.  Driving with an extreme BAC is a
class A misdemeanor.  If the person is found to have a prior
alcohol-related driving offense, the crime is a class D felony.
If the person is found to have 2 or more prior alcohol-related
driving offenses, the crime is a class C felony.

In addition, the bill also requires the Director of Revenue to
suspend in certain situations and to revoke in other situations

driving with a BAC of .15% or more.
