Illinois Senate Approves Texting Ban

May 20, 2009

SPRINGFIELD, IL --- The Illinois Senate on May 19 passed legislation that would ban texting behind the wheel, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The anti-texting bill, pushed by Secretary of State Jesse White, passed 45-6. Under House Bill 71, texting while driving would be the same as a moving violation. A violation would carry a $75 fine and three of those in a year could result in a driver losing his or her license.

The legislation now moves back to the House.
