Despite a big push by some lawmakers last year, only one drunken driving-related bill has gone to the governor’s desk.
Advocates of change say they had much higher hopes for the legislation.
More than a dozen bills were proposed this session related to drunken driving, eight of them by Rep. Jim Ott, R-Mequon. Of those, only one has gotten a vote in both houses of the legislature and is waiting for the governor’s signature. Three others passed the Assembly and are waiting for a vote in the Senate.
