Sanders Passes Bill Tightening DUI Offenders Participation in Victims’ Impact Panels

House Majority Leader Mike Sanders (R-Kingfisher) today passed a bill in the Oklahoma House of Representatives that would strengthen the role of victims’ impact panels in helping to stop driving under the influence (DUI) offenses in Oklahoma and to reduce the number of repeat offenders.

Sanders said House Bill 2877 was a request by victims’ impact panel programs currently operating in Oklahoma.

“This measure will make sure that DUI offenders go through this process of meeting with victims of these crimes,” Sanders said. This is proven to be 90 percent effective in our state. Any time we can save people from the incredible harm done by those who would drink and drive, we must. This not only saves the lives of potential future victims, but it reforms and stops those who would commit such crimes.”
