Stitt Ceremonially Signs Sanders’ DUI Victims’ Impact, Dyslexia Bills
House Majority Leader Mike Sanders, R-Kingfisher, attended the ceremonial bill signing for House Bills 2804 and 2877.
HB 2877 strengthens the role of victims’ impact panels in helping to stop driving under the influence (DUI) offenses in Oklahoma and will help reduce the number of repeat offenders. The measure was a request by victims’ impact panel programs currently operating in Oklahoma. It follows up on successful DUI legislation Sanders passed in 2016 that strengthened prosecution of repeat drunk drivers by creating the Impaired Driving Elimination Act, moving all DUI cases to a court of record, ensuring district attorneys statewide would have access to records of DUI offenses to reduce repeat offenses.
