A bill seeking to toughen laws against drunk drivers has passed a Louisiana Senate Committee.

Kaplan Senator Jonathan Perry‘s bill would mandate jail time of at least two days for someone convicted of a first DWI offense. Senator Perry believes that tougher DWI laws are just as important as any other legislation being discussed this session.

“We have done nothing in five years to drastically change DWI legislation in any way that makes it more of a deterrent.”

Also, Senator Perry says he’s not asking for a raise in fines on a first offense DWI because he doesn’t believe it would be a good deterrent for drinking and driving.

The bill moved forward without opposition and now heads to the Louisiana Senate Floor.
