It's crazy to see a lawmaker get up and give their approval to drunk driving, but that's what happened in Montana this week. GOP Rep. and bar owner Alan Hale spoke out against a bill that would stiffen the state's DUI laws.
Said Hale: "These DUI laws are not doing our small businesses in our state any good at all. They are destroying them. They are destroying a way of life that has been in Montana for years and years. These taverns and bars in these smaller communities connect people together. They are the center of the communities. I'll guarantee you there's only two ways to get there: either you hitchhike, or you drive, and I promise you they're not going to hitchhike."
