Your guess would be as good as anyone's to wonder whether this bill is in response to the recent DUI arrest of Columbus Rep. Kip Smith, but my guess is it doesn't have anything to do with that.
From the AJC's Christopher Quinn:
Rep. Rusty Kidd, I-Milledgeville, said some people who make the mistake of driving drunk once have to live with a lifetime of problems, such as being disqualified from jobs or scholarships.
"If you have a DUI, it never comes off your record," Kidd said.
