Governor Comes to Broomfield to Sign Drivers License Law
This morning, I stood in the Broomfield courtroom where I first started as a prosecutor and watched as Governor Hickenlooper signed my most important bill of the session into law. Under current law, if a Coloradan fails to pay a traffic ticket, his or her driver's license will be suspended, and, after that, driving becomes a crime punishable by up to 6 months in jail. House Bill 1162 reduces that penalty to a minor traffic infraction so that no one is charged with a crime simply because they couldn't afford to pay a ticket. Thanks so much to Governor Hickenlooper and Representative Melton for coming to Broomfield today!
