Text Messaging Ban Passes

The State Senate passed Senate Bill 103 on Tuesday, which would ban text messaging by drivers in Wisconsin. Studies have shown that text messaging while driving significantly impairs a driver’s response time and attentiveness, creating a safety hazard. I supported and co-sponsored this proposal. The bill will now be sent to the State Assembly for consideration.
