Cullerton is also leading the charge on two new rules in the wake of the incident. According to the Tribune:
The incident also prompted Cullerton to change the Senate rules regarding the use of the taxpayer-funded cars, which will no longer be allowed to be parked and stored at private residences. Cullerton primarily kept the SUV at his Chicago home, but moved it to the downtown state building following the arrest.
Lawmakers and staff members also must now log travel details, including the date, time and mileage of all trips.
Garritt, 26, was arrested on Sunday, April 18 in the 800 block of North Dearborn with a reported BAC of .188, more than twice the legal limit. Cullerton later revealed that Garritt had taken the SUV without permission.
