CORAM - Two new state Senate bills aim to keep convicted drunken drivers off the roads.
One bill requires repeat DUI offenders to pay all fines and install ignition interlock systems before their driving privileges are restored.
Under the second bill, drivers convicted of DUI three times would have their licenses permanently revoked. An offender would also have his or her license revoked for drunken driving and hurting someone twice.
State Sen. Charles Fuschillo authored the bills.
A full state Senate is expected to vote on the bills before summer, but they face a more uncertain future in the state Assembly.
