American Beverage Institute Lobbying House Over Drunk-Driving Provisions

Business Journals reported, “The highway bill passed by the Senate last Wednesday includes two provisions that are causing indigestion for the restaurant industry, at least establishments that serve alcohol.” According to the article, “First, the legislation appropriates $24 million for a federal program that could lead to the installation of alcohol detection systems as standard equipment in all vehicles. Second, it would provide $40 million in financial incentives to states that require anyone convicted of driving while intoxicated to put ignition interlocks in their cars.” The American Beverage Institute is lobbying House members to reject the provisions related to drunk driving; Mothers Against Drunk Driving “strongly supported” the measures in the Senate.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
