This bill provides an additional penalty for operating under the influence of intoxicants or with an excessive alcohol level. The bill allows the court, when sentencing a person for criminal operating under the influence, to impose an order prohibiting the person from purchasing alcoholic beverages for the time period of the suspension. The bill requires the Secretary of State, upon receiving an attested copy of the court order, to record the order and notify the person. The bill directs the Secretary of State to adopt rules regarding notice to the person and notation on the person's driver's license of the prohibition and designates the rules as routine technical rules.
