Denver (AP) A bill giving the state more flexibility to gather evidence from drunken drivers is on its way to Governor Ritter for his signature.
The Senate Bill passed the House Wednesday, 51-to-14.
Representative Jim Riesberg, a Democrat from Greeley, says a loophole allows someone suspected of driving under the influence to choose either a blood alcohol test or a breathalyzer test.
If a test is not administered within two hours after the arrest, law enforcement does not have the proper evidence for a conviction.
The bill passed Wednesday still allows a driver to choose tests, but authorities could administer the other test if the suspect's preferred test can't be administered because of unforeseen circumstances.
