LePage vetoes harsher drunken-driving penalties

A legislator, a law enforcement officer and a district attorney are questioning Gov. Paul LePage’s decision to veto a bill that would expose some repeat drunken drivers to more severe penalties.

 

Rep. Timothy Marks, D-Pittston, the bill’s sponsor and a retired state trooper, said Tuesday he is surprised that LePage rejected a bill that would crack down on people convicted of felony operating under the influence.
