Highlight

Law enforcement must send the director of the Department of Transportation a certified copy of the analytical report of a blood test for the department to have authority to suspend a person's driving privileges.
Whether a blood test was fairly administered is a preliminary question of admissibility left to the administrative hearing officer's discretion.
Expert testimony is not required to admit an analytical report using the word "ethanol" instead of "alcohol."
