A state Senate Committee this week deadlocked on a bill to ban texting while driving, but the issue could still advance to the Senate floor. De Pere Republican, Senator Alan Lasee hopes so. “It’s a dangerous, dangerous practice,” says Lasee. “People have died.” Lasee is the author of a bill to prohibit the practice. The state Senate Transportation Committee deadlocked on a tie vote this week on a texting ban approved by the Assembly earlier this year. But panel Chairman, Senator Jim Holperin, will let the bill advance, anyway.
