The Gallatin County Commission will look at reducing the size of the DUI Task Force.

Folks with the Task Force introduced the issue today but the county attorney asked that they hold off on voting until he can speak with members of the task force.

We talked to member Susan Wordal to find out why they want a smaller DUI Task Force.

She told us it's been tough reaching a quorum at their meetings.  Wordal says, with 23 members, 12 must be present to vote, making it tough to do business.

Wordal says one of the reasons why the DUI Task Force is so large is because when they established the Task Force, they designated members from a number of agencies such as the Bozeman Police Department and the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office.
