Del. Chris Collins (R-Winchester): WE INCREASED THE PENALTIES FOR DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED THIRD OFFENSE TO A FELONY BECAUSE WE HAVE SO MANY DUI SECTIONS WE LEFT BEHIND TRUCK DRIVERS WHO ALSO DRIVE DRUNK SO WE NEED TO BRING THE CODE SECTION UP. THERE WAS FEWER PENALTIES DRIVING DRUNK WHILE DRIVING A TRACTOR TRAILER. NOW IT IS THE SAME. I HOPE YOU ENGROSSED AND ADVANCED TO THE THIRD READING.
