Michigan-State-Capitol-buildingLANSING, Mich. — The Michigan affiliate of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) plans to testify at the state capitol in Lansing today in support of renewing Michigan’s .08 blood alcohol concentration law.

MADD will testify in front of the House Criminal Justice Committee to urge lawmakers to renew the law because there is a sunset provision on it, which means the law would expire and revert back to the original limit of .10 in October of this year.

The .08 limit was put into effect in 2003, and since 2005, the .08 limit has been in effect in all 50 states.
