A bill passing the Senate would see drivers arrested for drug or alcohol offenses paying the entire cost of programs that give the offenders the opportunity to get their driver’s licenses back. As things stand now, an offender pays $65 of the total cost, with the state paying the rest. Senator Charlie Shields of St. Joseph, the sponsor, says it’s time for the offenders to pay their own way if they want to drive again. He says his bill will save the state a good deal of money every year – $1.3-Million. The bill now moves to the House.
