Bills would yank PFDs from drunk or uninsured drivers

Posted: Thursday, February 06, 2003

JUNEAU (AP) -- People who drive drunk -- or without insurance -- could lose permanent funds dividends under bills introduced Wednesday.

Senate Bill 59 would take one year's dividend away from a driver convicted of driving under the influence for the first time. A second offense would cost a driver five years' worth of dividends.

Under Senate Bill 58, the same permanent fund forfeiture penalties would apply to drivers who don't have liability insurance as required by the state.

Both bills were introduced by Sen. John Cowdery, R-Anchorage. They've been referred to the Judiciary and Finance Committees. Hearings have not been scheduled yet on them.
