BOSTON (WHDH) - Lawmakers in Massachusetts are moving forward with their plan to ban drivers from holding a phone while driving.
House lawmakers gave the bill preliminary approval earlier this week.
The law would require drivers to use a hands-free device while making or receiving phone calls in the car.
Texting while driving is already illegal in Massachusetts.
