Hickenlooper Calls For Felony DUI Law

CBS Denver

DENVER (AP) — Gov. John Hickenlooper wants tougher penalties for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Hickenlooper told lawmakers in his annual State of the State speech that his office supports efforts to make some DUI charges felonies for repeat offenders.

Colorado is one of only four states that does not have a felony DUI law.

Republicans in the Legislature have tried and failed to get a felony DUI measure to Hickenlooper’s desk.

The governor is laying out priorities to 100 lawmakers who started work last week.
