North Dakota DUI Measure Passes House

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota's House has endorsed a measure that would require jail time for some first-time drunken driving offenders. The measure passed 80-14 Wednesday and now goes to the North Dakota Senate.

The bill mandates that someone with a blood-alcohol content of 0.25 percent - or nearly three times the legal limit for driving - must spend a minimum of 10 days in jail.

The measure also increases fines and penalties and requires probation for repeat offenders.
