Friday letters: Emma’s Law a step forward

April 25, 2014 

— I deeply appreciate Rep. Rick Quinn and Sen. Joel Lourie for leading their respective chambers to unanimously pass Emma’s Law. While the law is not perfect, it is a giant step forward to reduce the number of drunk drivers on our roads, as similar laws have done in other states.

Much of the credit for passing this law goes to Karen and David Longstreet. They never gave up in their effort to make this law become a reality in memory of their daughter Emma.
