Mazza changes course on cell phone ban

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

A bill banning drivers from using cell phones has cleared another hurdle.

The Senate Transportation Committee unanimously passed the bill Monday -- in part thanks to Democratic Chair Senator Dick Mazza changing his longtime opposition on the issue.
     
The House has already passed a cell phone ban. Gov. Shumlin has said he would rather let Vermonters make up their own minds behind the wheel, but he hasn't said he would veto it.
