Minnesota is closer to joining 15 other states where it is illegal for drivers to use phones without hands-free capability while driving. The House Public Safety and Security Policy Committee voted March 13 to advance the bill. It has other committees to clear at the Capitol before final votes. Gov. Mark Dayton said he would sign it.
Minnesota lawmakers (both Republican and Democrat) and supporters rallied at the State Capitol a few weeks ago in favor of the bill. Representatives from NorthstarMLS were there in honor of longtime rules and regulations administrator, Hubert “Hugh” Skanes-Cady (Trimble). We believe passing this law will save lives.
There’s still time to take action! If you are in support, contact your representative today and urge them to also support this important legislation.
