Arizonans to see nearly 300 new laws — here’s what to expect

By Howard Fischer | Capitol Media Services via Arizona Daily Star

Sure, there were big, broad policy debates and decisions during the just-completed legislative session, like who gets a tax break, how much money for education and the rights of survivors of childhood sex abuse to sue.

But tucked into the nearly 300 measures that will become law are some items that are more likely to affect the day-to-day lives of typical Arizonans.

Consider: It is now illegal statewide to text while driving. Making calls while holding the phone in your hands is also forbidden, though police applying the new law can issue only warnings until 2021.

But feel free to keep eating that burger, putting on makeup or scolding the kids in the back seat, as Gov. Doug Ducey vetoed a broader ban on distracted driving.

On the subject of driving, if you’re someone who purchases the bare minimum liability coverage required, you should look to pay more.
