Date Introduced 02/03/2020

Under existing law, the office of transportation safety within the
office of the executive director of the department of transportation
(department) receives funding from the law enforcement assistance fund
(LEAF fund) to provide funding to local governments that have
established a qualified drunk driving prevention and law enforcement
program. The department receives funding from the first time drunk
driving offender account in the highway users tax fund for high-visibility
drunk driving enforcement.

The bill requires the general assembly to annually appropriate $2
million to the department for allocation to local government programs
that implement high-visibility drunk driving enforcement. The bill repeals
department funding for high-visibility drunk driving enforcement from
the first time drunk driving offender account and repeals office of
transportation safety funding from the LEAF fund.
