Lawmakers advance proposal to allow DUI offenders driving permits

SPRINGFIELD - A proposal to allow drunken driving offenders with revoked licenses to drive again has been advanced by Illinois lawmakers.

The legislation was approved in a 15-0 vote by a House committee Wednesday.  A prominent anti-drunk driving group also supports the bill.

Under the proposal, four-time DUI offenders would be allowed to obtain a restricted driver's permit five years after losing their license.  Applicants would need to prove three years of sobriety, complete treatment problems, and permanently install an in-car Breathalyzer.

The legislation now goes to the House floor for consideration.
