Senate Panel Kills Cell Phone Proposal

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A state Senate committee has killed a bill that would have prohibited the use of hand-held cellphones while driving in Wyoming.

The Senate Transportation, Highways and Military Affairs Committee voted against Senate File 93 on Monday.

The bill would have allowed drivers to use hands-free technology.

Bill sponsor Democratic Sen. Floyd Esquibel, of Cheyenne, says he will propose the bill again next year.

The committee delayed voting on a separate measure that would make it illegal for school bus drivers to use hand-held cellphones while operating a bus.
