She must pay a fine of $250; maintain absolute sobriety to include no possession or consumption of alcohol, illegal drugs, intoxication substances or any other controlled substances; cannot possess or consume any prescription drugs without a script; cannot have contact with known drug users, drug sellers, or places know where drugs can be obtained illegally and she must not enter an establishment whose primary purpose is the sale of alcohol.

Gallagher introduces term limits bill
WASHINGTON — On Wednesday, Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) introduced a bill to impose term limits on members of Congress. This is the first of several reforms that Gallagher pledged to make in his first 100 days in Congress.
“I’m holding true to my commitment to bring some Wisconsin common sense to Washington and change the way business gets done,” he said. “Congress should not be a career; rather, individuals should serve for a time, doing everything they can to work together to fix problems before returning home to civilian life.”
This joint resolution strictly applies to members who took office after the conclusion of the 114th Congress, and grandfathers in members who began their service prior to that time.
