The state Senate in Massachusetts is currently debating whether or not to change the language of a drunk driving law that allows many first time OUI offenders to get off scotch free.

State Senators are looking to close the loophole by allowing the Registry of Motor Vehicles to count cases without finding out about a first offense. Earlier in the week, the state Supreme Judicial Court decided that the Registry cannot account for these offenses when determining whether or not he license can be revoked of suspended.

“There’s a very clear need to address this and to do it swiftly,” said State Senate Bruce Tarr. “The unambiguous intent of Melanie’s Law was to target repeat drunk drivers and keep them off the road. In order to do that, we have to be able to count those offenses correctly.” Tarr also said that there is bipartisan support for this bill.
