Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman signed into law LB945 April 13, which would make texting while driving a secondary offense.
The law will go into effect sometime in July. Sometime this month the Legislature’s Revisor of Statutes will set the specific date.
LB945 was introduced by Sen. John Harms of Scottsbluff. It prohibits drivers from using handheld wireless communication devices to read, type or send written communications while driving.
