  1 29    This bill changes the limit for blood alcohol concentration
  1 30 (BAC) while driving from .10 BAC to .08 BAC.  Under this bill,

  2  1 subdivision from complying with a state mandate if funding for
  2  2 the cost of the state mandate is not provided or specified.
  2  3 Therefore, political subdivisions are required to comply with
  2  4 any state mandate included in this bill.
