The Georgia General Assembly has given final approval to a bill that bans all drivers from texting while driving.
The House passed it by a 133-24 vote Thursday afternoon. It had already been approved by the Senate.
Violators would get a point against them on their auto insurance and face a possible $150 fine for the misdemeanor.
That came minutes after the House approved a separate bill that prohibits people under 18 from using cell phones while driving. The bill affects teens with Class D intermediate licenses.
That passed by a 137-23 vote and heads to the Governor's desk. It, too, had already won Senate approval.
Both laws would take effect on July 1 if the Governor signs them.
