Governor Whitmer has signed two House Bills into law that allow those who have a single conviction of driving while intoxicated to have their crimes expunged.

According to Fox 2 Detroit, Whitmer signed one bill on Tuesday to allow the expungement of drunk driving for first-time offenders and it’s expected to clear the records of roughly 200,000 OWI offenders.

The other bill keeps Michigan’s legal blood alcohol content (BAC) level for driving at .08. It was planned to increase the limit to .10.

Governor Whitmer said, “No one should be defined by a mistake they have made in the past. These bills allow Michiganders to move on from a past mistake in order to have a clean slate. We must clear a path for first-time offenders so that all residents are able to compete for jobs with a clean record and contribute to their communities in a positive way.”
