JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming lawmakers are looking into legislation that would keep repeat offenders of alcohol-related crimes out of jail and subject them instead to stringent testing.

The Joint Judiciary Interim Committee heard details about the 24/7 Sobriety Program in Jackson on Monday. The program was developed in South Dakota and has been adopted by several other states.

Under the program, people convicted for the second or subsequent time of driving while impaired can avoid going to jail if they agree to take daily breath tests or wear a monitoring bracelet.

The Associated Press reports that committee chairman Sen. John Schiffer asked legislative staffers to draw up draft legislation in time for the next committee meeting in July. The Kaycee Republican says the issue will be ready for next year’s legislative session.
