Legislation could impact families
Statistics show that most DUI offenders are male and many are married and old enough to receive Social Security benefits.
Proponents of the legislation being considered need to be reminded that jailed DUI offenders will have their Social Security benefits taken from them — and their families — while they are in jail [“Inslee, lawmakers plan DUI crackdown,” front page, April 17].
Consequently, it will be the families dependent on the offenders’ income who will also suffer if this legislation is made into law. Is that fair?
