We, the undersigned, in an effort to make our highways safer, urge the Wisconsin State Legislature, led by our hometown Senator Russ Decker, to adopt "Lacey's Law"--in honor of Lacey Meinel, who was unnecessarily and tragically killed by a drunk driver in January of 2009. Lacey's Law would: -Impose a $1000 fine, a 30-day jail sentence, and revoke an OWI offender's license for two years after the first offense, -Impose a 6-month felony jail sentence and permanently revoke the OWI offender's license after the second offense, -Impose a 25-year prison sentence with NO POSSIBILITY of parole for 10 years if an innocent person is killed or severely injured in an accident that stemmed from drunk driving, -Impose severe penalties (including the loss of liquor license) for bar owners, bartenders, or bar security that knowingly allows a drunken patron (.08 BAC) to leave the establishment with car keys
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
