It looks like the state’s newest drivers may still tap away at and chat on their cell phones.

Rep. Phil Lovas, R-Peoria, who chairs the House Rules Committee, confirmed today that he is refusing to give a hearing to a Senate-passed bill that would make the use of hand-held communication devices illegal for teens during the first six months they have a license.

Lovas told Capitol Media Services he is “personally ambivalent” about making the practice illegal. Instead, Lovas said, he is reflecting the views of some other legislators.

“I’ve heard from other members,” he said.
