Jefferson High School graduate wants to close loophole allowing legislators to drive drunk
A 2010 graduate of Jefferson High School is trying to close a loophole that allows state legislators to drive drunk in some circumstances.
Hope Baker is among eight Concordia University-St. Paul political science students who are trying to pass the Legislator Immunity Act of 2014 (HF 2282).
The legislation cleared a hurdle last week when it was passed by a House public safety committee, 11-2.
On Tuesday night, it’s scheduled to go before the Senate.
