Tougher DUI policy awaits Haley’s OK

Nothing will revive 6-year-old Emma Longstreet, but some are hoping legislation that bears her name will save the lives of others by preventing drunken driving.

The bill met with a surge of support from legislators, substance abuse prevention specialists and the law enforcement community.
