Assemblymember Feuer discusses DUI legislation with KPCC talk show host Patt Morrison

Assemblymember Mike Feuer has introduced legislation that requires first time and repeat DUI offenders to have a dashboard breathalyzer installed in their vehicles for several months.

The bill was approved by the Assembly Public Safety Committee with no opposing votes, and will next be heard in the Assembly Transportation Committee.
