STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This legislation makes the penalties for manslaughter, which
results from the operation of a vehicle, consistent with
the penalties for other voluntary manslaughter (up to $15,000
fine and 15 years imprisonment).
The amount of the fine and imprisonment sentence is subject to
court decision, thus the amount cannot be estimated.
