HARRISBURG – The PA Senate approved a bill which makes several changes to the state’s DUI law. York County Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill is a sponsor of Senate Bill 453 which updates PA law to reflect new decisions made by both the U.S. and PA Supreme Courts. The bill clarifies the sentencing guidelines for a person convicted of operating a motor vehicle with an existing license suspension from a DUI offense. The PA Supreme Court resolved that the individual must be sentenced to undergo imprisonment for 60 days for a first violation or a period of 90 days for a second. To address a U.S Supreme Court case, the bill updates a provision for refusing a breath or chemical test, consistent with Act 30 of 2017. Phillips Hill said with these two court cases being acknowledged by the legislature, our roads will be safer and dangerous repeat impaired drivers will face appropriate consequences and other treatment. The bill now heads to the PA House.
