SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Former Utah Senate Majority Leader Sheldon Killpack wants his driver's license reinstated.

Killpack was arrested for investigation of driving under the influence in January and resigned from the Legislature the next day.

He has pleaded not guilty to the charge, but his license has already been suspended.

Killpack's attorneys filed a motion March 10 to get the license reinstated, court records show. A hearing date has not been set.

A message left with Killpack's attorney, Ed Brass, was not immediately returned Thursday.

The suspension runs through August 2011 and was done because Killpack refused a breath test, Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeff Nigbur said.

Once Killpack gets his license back, he will have to use an interlock device on his vehicle that requires him to blow into it to show there is no alcohol in his system before he can start the ignition, Nigbur said.

Court documents say Killpack's blood alcohol level was 0.11, above the legal limit of 0.08

Police obtained a warrant for the blood test after Killpack allegedly performed poorly in field sobriety tests and refused a breath test.
