The 2010 Iowa legislative session is history and over the past three months lawmakers passed laws that will change every day life for many Iowans. Legislators passed a bill which makes it illegal to read or send text messages while you’re driving.
The new law is even tougher on teenagers. Some say it’s an attempt to get new drivers to keep two hands on the wheel. Once the governor signs the bill into law, it will be illegal for teenagers to use any handheld electronic device while they’re driving — so no texting and no talking on the cell phone either if you’re under the age of 18.
