Annapolis, MD – The Senate on Monday night passed legislation that would expand the use of ignition interlock devices for people convicted of driving drunk.

With the Senate’s 45-0 vote, attention will shift to a coming conference between senators and delegates to hammer out differences between the chambers’ versions of the legislation, named in memory of a Montgomery County police officer killed by a suspected drunken driver.

The House of Delegates passed its version on a 136-0 vote on March 15.
