The Michigan State Police, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and other groups support maintaining the current standard.
LANSING -- The state House Criminal Justice Committee voted unanimously Wednesday to keep Michigan's drunken-driving blood-alcohol level at 0.08%. If the Legislature doesn't act, the level will revert to 0.10% on Oct. 1. In Michigan, a blood-alcohol level of 0.08% is considered drunken driving.

State legislators to vote on drunk driving limit

Lead in text: 
Members of Mothers Against Drunk Driving are trying to keep the Michigan drunk driving limit from increasing. The state lowered the limit to 0.08% ten years ago, but the law included a provision that would change the limit back to 0.10% this year.
LANSING - It's a no-brainer, say police, judges and Mothers Against Drunk Driving. They're advocating for the state to keep its drunken driving limit at 0.08% - which appears likely. But the Legislature has to take action before Oct. 1 or else the limit will return to 0.10%.
