Gov. Kenny Guinn has signed legislation lowering the state’s legal
blood-alcohol limit from 0.10 percent to 0.08 percent.
governor’s signature secures millions in federal highway dollars
for the state.
2000 federal law requires each state’s legislature to adopt the
lower drinking and driving limit by 2004 or lose 2 percent of its
stood to lose $28.4 million in federal money over the next four
years if it had not lowered the drunken driving limit, Las Vegas’
KVBC TV reported.
new law goes into effect Sept. 23.
