Bill to lower Oregon's drunken driving limit stalls in Salem

A bill to lower the legal blood alcohol limit in Oregon to .05 percent will not move forward in Salem this year.

Sen. President Peter Courtney, D-Salem, confirmed Monday that his Senate Bill 7, which calls for Oregon to lower its drunken driving limit from .08 to .05 percent blood alcohol content, is dead.

Were not going to do it this session, Courtney said of his attempt to impose tougher blood alcohol content rules. Im not surprised. I do know that we have made progress.

Tuesday is the deadline for hundreds of bills to be moved out of Senate and House policy committees, and Courtney said Monday his bill will not be one of them. Kevin Moore, legislative aide for Sen. Floyd Prozanski, D-Eugene, the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee assigned the drunken driving legislation, confirmed Senate Bill 7 wont be advancing this session.
