CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- The Senate has approved a limited driver's license for first-time drunken drivers to go to work, medical treatment, school or other location approved by a New Hampshire judge.
Thursday's vote sent the bill back to the House to review.
People applying for the special license would have to have an ignition interlock device installed on the vehicle and could only drive to specified locations, such as to work or to attend an alcohol or drug treatment program.
If approved, the law wouldn't take effect until 2016 to give the state time to prepare.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving supports the bill as a way to teach people to drive sober.
