The Arizona Legislature has completed revisions to a measure toughening laws against drunken driving and boating that was vetoed earlier this year.

This time the law discards a provision softening a penalty for some offenders.

The House on Tuesday approved a bill (HB2643) that omits the provision that prompted Gov. Janet Napolitano to veto the bill earlier his year. The Senate approved the new version Monday.
The legislation requires first-time offenders convicted of operating a boat while intoxicated to generally serve 10 consecutive days in jail. It also expands circumstances in which a drunken driver's license is suspended for 90days after a fatal accident.

The omitted provision would have shortened a requirement that first-time DUI offenders use ignition interlocks.

The interlocks are only required for motor vehicle DUIs. There is no provision for Interlocks on boats.

That law has been in effect since last year. The earlier version, which was vetoed, called for a reduction of the interlock requirement from 1 year to 6 months.
