Iowa House OKs Changes to Drunken Driving Rules

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Lawmakers in the Iowa House have advanced a bill attempting to change the state's law dealing with drunken drivers.

The House voted 89-5 Tuesday to approve the measure, which now returns to the Senate for further consideration.

Under current law, an immediate license suspension is in place for drunken driving offenders, even on the first offense. The bill would allow offenders to begin driving more quickly if they install an ignition lock device, which requires drivers to show they haven't had alcohol before their vehicle ignition will unlock.

Rep. Chip Baltimore, a Republican from Boone, says the legislation would discourage drinking while driving, make Iowa's roads safer and save lives in the long run.
