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.

    The law should be the same of him as for the rest of us. He should loose the license just like anyone else.

    He should have to abide by the laws that everyone else has to. He is no exception
