I am for banning them while driving except as qualified as being operated hands free. The letter below was send to Representative Jerry Petrowski who chairs the committee that is now sitting on its hands and refusing to even allow committee discussion on a bill that will prohibit
cell phone use while driving. If you want to help ban hand held phone use while driving, call Jerry Petrowski and kindly ask him to bring the bill to committee. Rep. Petrowski at 1-888-534-0086

Chair, Assembly Committee on Highway Safety
4 West, State Capitol
Dear Chairperson Petrowski:
This letter serves as a follow up to our conversation this morning in which I requested
that you schedule a public hearing for Assembly Bill 58, my legislation that will prohibit
cell phone use while driving.
In light of the tragic accident that took place in Dodge County earlier this week, and the
media attention that has taken place on my legislation, I feel it is important that we bring
this to a public hearing before we begin the Fall floor session. Therefore, I would request
that AB 58 be added to your next scheduled committee hearing. Through the hearing
process we can improve upon the bill and garner the support necessary for bringing it to
the floor of the Assembly for a vote.
Thank you for your consideration to this request.
