Tennessee Bill Would Force Drunk Drivers to Pay Support for Victim’s Kids

A bill that passed the Tennessee state Legislature this week would force convicted drunk drivers to pay child support if they’re in a crash that kills a parent of a minor. Mark Hall, a member of the state House of Representatives who sponsored the bill, said children would have “the best chance of success after a tragedy” if the bill becomes law. “Needless to say it’s devastating and you’ve got children that have a very limited future without their parents,” Hall told The Post in an interview on Friday.

As someone who believes in self-responsibility I love this bill and it should be enacted in every state.
