Steps Taken To Suspend Michigan Lawmaker's License

LANSING -- The state lawmaker arrested in East Lansing after refusing a Breathalyzer test may have his license suspended for a year, beginning next month.

An administrative law examiner with the Secretary of State's office decided Monday Rep. Bob Genetski of Saugatuk violated Michigan's implied consent law.

Refusing a Breathalyzer test can be punished by a year-long license suspension under the implied consent law.

Genetski's lawyer tells News 10 his client will appeal the ruling and ask for at least a restricted license that allows him to drive to work.

If the suspension stands, it will begin April 9.
