Idaho Law Would Require Two Breath Tests a Day

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A bill that would allow Idaho judges to require alcohol breath testing twice a day for some probationers is headed to the full Senate. The bill sponsored by Coeur d’Alene Republican Rep. Luke Malek gives counties the option to take part in the program by placing special alcohol breath testing units in central locations like sheriff’s departments or county courthouses. Judges would then have the option to require people who were convicted of drug or alcohol related crimes to prove sobriety by undergoing twice-daily testing while on probation. Proponents say the program allows for swift intervention and gives judges greater flexibility. For instance, someone convicted of drunken driving could be allowed to keep their license while on probation as long as the twice-daily tests show they are staying sober.
