Establishes the 14 member criminal law and sentencing policy study committee (study committee) to evaluate criminal laws and sentencing policies. Repeals laws establishing the sentencing policy study committee. Adds topics for the study committee to study and make recommendations about in the 2010 interim. Provides that the driver's license of a person convicted of resisting law enforcement while using a vehicle and: (1) exceeding the speed limit by at least 20 miles per hour; (2) committing criminal recklessness; or (3) engaging in reckless driving with a vehicle; may be suspended for one year for a first offense and two years for a second or subsequent offense. Provides that if a person receives a sentence that includes: (1) a term of incarceration; and (2) a driver's license suspension; the driver's license suspension begins on the date the person is released from incarceration and not on the date the person is convicted. Specifies in which court a petition for a hardship license must be filed. Requires the court to notify the bureau of motor vehicles of the person's conviction, and specifies that the convicted person has the burden of applying for a new or renewal license and establishing that the one year or two year period has elapsed. Enhances the penalty and prohibits a person from receiving a driver's license if a person has a second unrelated conviction for knowingly or intentionally operating a motor vehicle and has never received a valid driver's license.
