Crapo Voted for Federal Law Mandating .08 BAC Limit

December 24, 2012

Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, who was arrested on December 23 for driving under the influence, voted for a federal law that requires states to set a .08 blood alcohol content level for over-the-limit driving laws. Non-compliant states would forfeit some of their federal transportation money otherwise.

Crapo registered a BAC level of .110.

According to a report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, "In October 2000, the Department of Transportation's 2001 Appropriations Act (HR4475) was passed by both chambers of the U.S. Congress and signed by Bill Clinton. The Act provides that states must pass a .08 per se law by 2004 or begin losing federal highway construction funds."

The roll call list shows that Crapo voted in favor of the bill that passed the Senate 52-43.

Police arrested Crapo in Alexandria, Virginia, a state that implemented its .08 drunk driving law in 1994. The AP previously reported that the Mormon bishop Crapo abstains from drinking alcohol.
