Graduated Licenses and Hand Held Devices- Failed

Senate Bill 182 would have amended the graduated license law to state no person, under the age of eighteen (18), who is issued a learners permit or intermediate license will be allowed to use a hand-held electronic device while operating a motor vehicle, unless the use of the hand-held electronic device is for a life-threatening emergency purpose.
Using a hand-held electronic device means engaging any function on an electronic device.
This has passed the Committee on Safety.
The bill failed today by a 22-20 vote in the House.
