Kansas might get a DUI repository after all, legislator says

Beer

Kansas' DUI commission recently released a plan to improve how the state punishes drunken drivers, but those improvements would cost about $11 million -- which probably isn't realistic, considering the budget.

State Sen. Tim Owens, who represents Overland Park in the legislature, says they might be able to fund a central repository / database of Kansas DUI convictions, a project that would cost $3 million, the Wichita Eagle reports. That database would make sure that judges know exactly how many prior DUIs a defendant had, allowing them to levy harsher punishment if necessary.
