Driver's Licenses Flagged For Twice-Convicted Felons

RANT: Should driver's licenses should be flagged for people twice-convicted for felony
drug offenses? Email Hoyt at hoyt.harris@katctv.com. We could use your RANT at 10:00.
The words "drug offender" would be written in orange across
the license, under the bill by Rep. Rickey Hardy, a Democrat from
Lafayette. The House Transportation Committee agreed to the
proposal Tuesday without objection.
It goes next to the full House for debate.
Hardy says it would be similar to a provision in current law
that requires a similar flag on driver's licenses for convicted sex
offenders.
An officer for the Louisiana State Police says the special
license, which would be required for eight years, would help
officers know the danger of the person they may encounter in a
routine traffic stop.
