MN House passes DWI immunity bill

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota House of Representatives has passed the DWI Immunity bill with a vote of 115 to 13.

The measure is designed to prevent legislators from getting immunity if they are pulled over for a DWI during a legislative session.

Currently, the law grants lawmakers immunity except in cases of "treason, felony, and breach of the peace."

The provision in the state constitution was designed to protect legislators from being detained and then unable to vote on bills.

The bill now moves to the State Senate.
