Assembly passes drunken driving revocation bill

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Assembly has passed a bill that would strip repeat drunken drivers of their licenses for at least a decade.

Under the bill, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation would be required to permanently revoke the license of anyone caught driving drunk for a fifth or subsequent offense. The drivers wouldn’t be eligible for occupational licenses but could petition WisDOT for reinstatement after 10 years.

The Assembly approved the measure on a voice vote Thursday evening, sending the bill to the state Senate.
