(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill aimed at reducing distractions for drivers in Washington is a step closer to final legislative passage.  The House has approved a measure that's designed to update a current state law that prohibits texting while driving and requires a hands-free device while talking on a cell phone.  Supporters say the law, when it was passed years ago, didn't specifically ban using social media or doing many of the things that are now possible with a smart phone.  The bill is headed back to the Senate for agreement on minor House changes.
