Michigan's legal limit for blood alcohol content level while driving would stay 0.08 under a pair of bills approved by the state House Tuesday.

The bills, HB 4547 and HB 4548, extends the sunset created by lawmakers in 2003, when legislators approved changing the blood alcohol content level for concluding a driver is intoxicated from 0.10 to 0.08. 

The sunset was initially set to expire in 2013, but the Legislature approved an extension to keep the limit until Oct. 1, 2018. The legislation approved Tuesday calls for an extension to Oct. 1, 2023 and updates sentencing guidelines to match the changes.
