The Louisiana Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) named Rep. Sherman Mack (R-Albany) as their 2014 Louisiana House of Representatives Legislator of the Year.
     “This is a true honor to be recognized by a group that has worked tirelessly to eliminate drunk driving, advance the rights of drunk driving victims and prevent underage drinking,” said Mack.
     Mack is one of 81 legislators in the United States to be honored with the National Legislative Champion Award.
      “MADD graciously thanks Rep. Mack and the other lawmakers around the country who authored and helped advance legislation central to MADDs mission of eliminating drunk driving, serving victims and preventing underage drinking’” said MADD National President Jan Withers. “To these lawmakers who worked tirelessly to protect our families from drunk drivers and to help protect our young people from underage drinking, we are forever grateful.”
      Rep. Mack delivered on a campaign promise for stronger DWI laws when his House Bill 47 passed the Louisiana Senate by a 33-3 vote.
   This legislation mandates 30 days in jail for a motorist who is convicted of two driving while intoxicated in one year.
    Mack said this bill was especially personal for him.
    The tougher DWI law is called the “Ken Frahm Law” according to Mack.
    "This bill had a special meaning to me. My good friend Ken Frahm was killed as a result of a drunk driver,” said Mack. “Ken was one of my best friends and this will ensure his memory lives on.”
    Mack also said he hopes this new law, along with the work of MADD, will save lives and spare other families and friends in Louisiana from the devastating loss caused by a drunk driver.
