Nebraska lawmakers are set to review a proposal that would prohibit school bus drivers from using cell phones while driving.

The Legislature's Transportation and Telecommunications Committee will consider the measure during a hearing on Tuesday.

The bill would prohibit school bus drivers from using any type of interactive, wireless communication device whenever the vehicle is in motion.

The prohibition would not apply to a dispatch communication device. The measure was introduced by Sen. Kate Sullivan, of Cedar Rapids.
