The House of Representatives voted 90-5 on May 25, 2010, in favor of an Oklahoma Senate bill to make texting while driving illegal in Oklahoma for teenagers and inexperienced drivers. House co-author, Democrat Rep. Danny Morgan says he had hoped to ban texting for all drivers, but is pleased with the compromise to target younger drivers.
