Mothers Against Drunk Driving New Mexico (MADD) Monday announced its “2013 Legislative Champions” and recognized Speaker W. Ken Martinez, Representatives Liz Thomson, Stephanie Garcia Richard, and Tim Lewis for their leadership within the New Mexico Legislature to stop drunk driving and protect the rights of victims.
“MADD thanks Speaker Martinez and Representatives Thomson, Garcia Richard, and Lewis for authoring legislation improving New Mexico’s drunk driving law. MADD appreciates their dedication and commitment to advancing MADD’s mission in New Mexico,” said MADD National President Jan Withers.
In 2013, a package of bills were authored, reforming the state’s drunk driving laws. Speaker Martinez authored the first all offender interlock law in 2005, which spurred a movement across the nation, and helped to spark MADD’s Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving.
“As a freshman in the New Mexico Legislature,” Garcia Richard said, “it was my goal to help strengthen our ‘Driving While Intoxicated’ laws and ensure all offenders are held accountable for their actions. I will continue to fight for tougher laws to protect New Mexicans and am honored to be a 2013 MADD Legislative Champion.”
