Drunk Driving Enforcement Funding


Under existing law, the office of transportation safety within the office of the executive director of the department of transportation (department) receives funding from the law enforcement assistance fund (LEAF fund) to provide funding to local governments that have established a qualified drunk driving prevention and law enforcement program. The department receives funding from the first time drunk driving offender account in the highway users tax fund for high-visibility drunk driving enforcement. The bill requires the general assembly to annually appropriate $2 million to the department for allocation to local government programs that implement high-visibility drunk driving enforcement. The bill repeals department funding for high-visibility drunk driving enforcement from the first time drunk driving offender account and repeals office of transportation safety funding from the LEAF fund. (Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
