Time running out for Arizona legislature to pass texting-and-driving ban

Time is almost up for the 2019 legislative session, so could the next week be the last chance for the distracted driving bill?

What started back in January as a Senate bill migrated through a series of maneuvers over to the House side. HB 2318 stands as the best chance to get a statewide texting-and-driving ban passed in the state of Arizona.

The bill made a lot of progress this week, leaving committees and caucuses with the only remaining step a full floor House vote. But there are some questions as to whether or not that’s going to happen next week.
