OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KOCO)- Oklahoma Senate Bill 643 has been endorsed by members of the Mothers Against Drunk Driving organization.

The bill allows first-time offenders to get their revoked licenses back faster if they put an interlock device into their vehicles and join a sobriety program.

"We can weed out people who truly (committed) a mistake. A first-time mistake," said Sen. Kim David, the bill's author. "Those aren't people we want to punish. We can get people that need help.
