A statewide ban on texting while driving seems to be on the fast-track at the Capitol.
It passed the Senate by an overwhelming margin earlier this week. Now, the Assembly author Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) expects quick action in his house. The state Representative from Kenosha says he’s optimistic the bill will pass quickly this fall.
Barca says there’s widespread bipartisan support for the texting while driving ban, which is similar to laws passed in 19 other states.
Barca says there’s just no way to punch keys on a cell phone when behind the wheel, without putting yourself and others at risk.
