NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) -- Tennessee lawmakers have repealed an underage drunken driving law that ran afoul of federal zero-tolerance standards.
The Senate passed the measure 31-1 Wednesday morning and the House later followed suit on an 85-2 vote.
The state law, that went into effect in July, raised the maximum allowable blood alcohol content from 0.02 percent to 0.08 percent for those drivers.
Gov. Haslam called legislators into special session to repeal the law to keep Tennessee from losing $60 million in federal road funds.
