From the Bangor (Maine) Daily News, the latest thinking in the continuing "War on Drunk Driving":
AUGUSTA: In hopes of reducing death and injury from drunken driving in Maine, legislators are considering confiscating the hunting and fishing licenses of those convicted of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The proposed bill, LD 82, would suspend hunting and fishing licenses concurrent with a driver’s license revocation as a result of OUI. Repeat offenders with three drunken driving convictions would face a lifetime ban on hunting and fishing in Maine.
Confiscation of dog tags, construction permits and marriage licenses is on the drawing board. (With thanks to attorney Wayne R. Foote of Bangor).
