Kentucky Considers 'No Phone Zones' Bill

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) A bill that would restrict the use of cell phones in Kentucky's school and construction zones has cleared its first panel Tuesday.

Rep. Terry Mills, a Democrat from Lebanon, sponsored the bill. Mills says it would be illegal to initiate a call or input a phone number while in one of the "no phone zones."

Current state law forbids texting while driving, but the bill would also increase fines for those found doing so.

The bill was amended in committee to exempt drivers using hands-free devices.

The measure cleared the House Transportation Committee on a 17-3 vote. It now moves to the House for consideration.
