A bill that would ban texting while driving statewide is up for debate in the State House.
If passed, drivers would be fined $25 the first time they're caught, $50 for the second, and $75 for the next.
Drivers would also receive one point on the driver's license for each citation. If you don’t know, after 12 points you can lose your driver's license.
A similar bill was approved Wednesday in a senate judiciary committee.
