R.I. House passes cell phone ban while driving

As reported by WPRI.com, the Rhode Island House of Representatives passed a bill in June 2017 to make it illegal for Rhode Island motorists to hold a cell phone to their ear while driving. The vote was 57-7. The Senate had passed a similar bill a few months earlier. Under Rhode Island law, the two bills will need to be reconciled so each chamber can pass the same bill. Gov. Gina Raimondo has indicated that she supports such a bill, but will need to review the exact language before signing it. Rhode Island already bans texting while driving.
