Senate passes texting-while-driving ban
Sen. Nancy Detert urged the Florida Senate to pass a bill Tuesday that would ban texting while driving and send a message to the House, where Rep. Ellyn Bogdanoff, R-Fort Lauderdale, chairwoman of the House Finance and Tax Council, refuses to move the legislation forward.
"This bill is not dead in the Florida Senate,” said Detert, adding, “I would ask you to send the folks down the hall a message.”
The Senate passed the bill 34-4.
