State lawmakers to address ban on texting while driving in 2013 session

State Sen. Billy Hudson again plans a proposal to ban texting while driving.

The Hattiesburg Republican told The Clarion-Ledger that his proposed bill would also ban cellphone use unless a hands-free device is used.

Hudson said his bill, to be considered by the 2013 Legislature, would ban all mobile phone use by drivers younger than 18. Last year, a bill Hudson introduced died in committee.
