ICYMI – Conditional Veto of new DWI sentencing bill by Guv.
[6:19 p.m., March 24, 2015] On March 23rd, Governor Christie sent a conditional veto message to the legislature, rejecting the proposed Bill 1368 which would fundamentally change DWI sentencing law. The Governor’s recommendations call for the installation of ignition interlock devices in every instance for longer period. The idea of shortened d/l suspensions periods is eliminated. A copy of the governor’s conditional veto message is below. The bill, along with the suggested changes, now returns to the Assembly and Senate for an up or down vote.
