With a vote of 29-6, the Senate bill banning texting while driving passed the Senate Tuesday, according to the Idaho Statesman.

Similar legislation has been introduced by Idaho lawmakers in the last 2-3 years, without success in passing the Legislature. Sen. Jim Hammond, R-Coeur d'Alene, believes that this current version of an anti-texting bill is simple, effective and also enforceable. The penalty if found guilty of texting while driving would be $85 plus court costs.
