HELENA – A bill targeting repeat DUI offenders in Montana passed during a second reading in the House today on Saturday.

House Bill 106 calls for second and subsequent DUI offenders to take a breath test twice a day while awaiting sentencing.

The 24/7 program would be funded by the offenders who pay $2 per breath test.

The bill, which was introduced by Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock and Representative Steve Lavin of Kalispell, passed on a 96-3 vote.

A third and final hearing is expected in a House vote on Monday, where it will then move to the Senate.
