MADISON (WKOW) -- There is a new proposal to come down harder on drivers who operate without a valid license. The State Assembly Committee on Judiciary and Ethics heard arguments Thursday in favor of a bill that would make it a Class I felony if you killed someone while knowingly driving without a valid license.
A Class I felony is punishable by up to three and a half years in jail, a $10,000 fine or both.
Under current law, drivers operating without a license simply pay a fine. If they injure or kill another person while driving, they would only be charged with a misdemeanor.
