Current Bill Summary


SB 192 - This act redefines the term "intoxication-related traffic offense" to include certain traffic offenses involving alcohol regardless of whether the defendant was represented by or waived the right to an attorney in writing. This term is used in the provisions providing enhanced penalties for persons who commit multiple intoxication-related traffic offenses.

This act also repeals one version of Section 577.023, RSMo, which is currently doubly-enacted.

This act is similar to SB 861 (2008) and a provision of CCS/SS/SCS/HCS/HB 62 (2009).
