The state Senate tentatively approves a bill making it easier to be considered drunk while driving. The bill lowers the blood-alcohol level to point oh-eight. The present level is point-one-oh. Florissant Senator John Schneider made one change, though–saying a person caught at point oh-eight would not be considered to have committed a crime unless they also were convicted of a moving violation. The state has to lower its DWI blood-alcohol level or lose five million dollars in highway building money.
