Arizona is just one signature away from imposing its first-ever limits on the use of cell phones by teens.
On a 32-24 margin, the state House today gave final approval to legislation banning teens with a learner’s driving permit from texting or making calls from their cell phones while behind the wheel. SB1080 also extends that to the first six months they have their actual Class G license, which is reserved for the newest drivers.
The measure, which previously was approved by the Senate on a 24-6 margin, now goes to Gov. Doug Ducey.
Gubernatorial press aide Daniel Scarpinato said only that his boss will review the bill.
