Driver Diversion Bill



A bill allowing driver diversion programs across the state to resume has passed a deadline in the Minnesota Senate and is still alive.

Democratic Senator Matt Schmit of Red Wing says the measure would make the controversial programs, including classes in both Wabasha and Goodhue counties, legal.
 
Schmit says he wants the issue settled once and for all.

Both Wabasha and Goodhue counties suspended their classes after a court ruling determined they were unconstitutional.

Fees paid by participants were being kept locally instead of going to the state.
