H.62 aims to prohibit drivers from using cellphones in moving vehicles. As the bill was amended by the Transportation Committee this prohibition extended to the activation and deactivation of hands-free functionality while moving, without taking into consideration the fact that most smart phones allow for one-touch activation of hands-free functionality. I voted NO on the bill prior to successfully amending it the next day to allow for hands-free use if your phone is securely mounted in a cradle and you only have to push a button to activate it. My amendment, co-sponsored by a Republican, a Progressive and another D, passed unanimously on a voice vote. The Senate will now have its way with the bill and the governor has indicated that he might veto it.
