It calls for drivers in Missouri who refuse to take a blood alcohol test to be charged with a misdemeanor and have two points added to their driving record. State officials say about one in 3 drivers stopped refuse to submit to a breath or blood test. Bryan Stevenson is the bill's sponsor. The bill also requires police, prosecutors, and judges to submit information on all DWI offenses to the State highway patrol's DWI tracking system and for municipal judges to take courses to review the State's intoxication laws. The house crime prevention committee is expected to vote on the bill in the coming weeks.
