There are two bills that have been introduced in the State Legislature that would help the TLW to promote our SafeRide program and increase utilization of our award winning program. Assembly Bill 138, authored by Rep. Pronschinske is before the Assembly Committee on State Affairs, and Senate Bill 98, authored by Senator Testin, is before the Senate Committee on Transportation and Veterans Affairs.
AB 138 and SB 98 allow SafeRide grant recipients to use grant money to advertise the programs they operate. No state tax money is used on the program, it is funded by surcharges on OWI offenders and a match by the TLW. These are important pieces of legislation that will allow the TLW to increase awareness and utilization of this valuable program.
