An Ohio senate committee is taking another look at a proposal to ban texting while driving in the state.
The bill would make writing, reading, and sending text messages while driving a minor misdemeanor. Possible penalties include a $150 fine.
The GOP controlled house passed the bill in June. It's been stalled in the senate since last fall. Changes to the bill are being discussed including an amendment to keep 16 and 17 year olds from using any electronic device behind the wheel.
However, senate president Tom Niehaus says he's concerned with enforcing the ban. The proposal could be voted on by the full senate on Thursday.
