Together with the Congressional Stop DUI Caucus, The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility teamed up with its partners to present joint recommendations to Congress this week in a briefing for Congressional staff. One of the speakers at the briefing was The Honorable Kent Lawrence, judge of the State Court of Clarke County in Athens, Georgia and a national leader on DWI Courts. The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility, the National Association of Drug Court Professionals, the National Judicial College, the National District Attorneys Association, the American Probation and Parole Association, the National Association of Prosecutors, and the National Partnership on Alcohol Misuse and Crime are urging Members of Congress to provide funding to states in the next highway bill that will reduce hardcore drunk driving through expansion of DWI courts, Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutors and trainings for criminal justice professionals.
