The state Senate is giving its approval to a bill that bans the use of hand held electronic devices while driving.
The bill seeks to ban the use of all hand held devices, except when drivers tap a single button to enter hands free mode.
Texting and driving was banned in Massachusetts in 2010.
The House previously passed a similar bill, and a conference committee will form to work out the differences.
The Governor has already signaled that he would sign the measure.
