COLUMBIA, S.C. - A bill creating harsher penalties for repeat drunken drivers is now headed to South Carolina’s full House.

"Emma's Law" passed a committee Tuesday and has already passed the Senate.  
           
It would make first-time DUI offenders get ignition locks in their cars.

The bill is named for a 6-year-old girl who was killed by a repeat drunken driver in 2012.
