MADISON -- A statement from the Governor's Office indicates Governor Scott Walker on Monday, April 25th signed into law a bill cracking down on drunk driving.
Walker signed Senate Bill 455 into law Monday morning at the Capitol in Madison -- one of seven bills signed by Walker in Madison Monday.
The bill will make fourth offense drunk driving a felony -- regardless of when it was committed. Previously, fourth offense drunk driving was only a felony if it occurred within five years of a previous DUI.
The bill will also increase penalties for repeat drunk drivers. Those convicted of fifth or sixth DUI offenses will serve five years in prison, vs. three.
