(Salem, OR)  --  A new bill passed in the Oregon Senate makes it illegal to do anything on your phone while driving.  House Bill 2597 expands a law from 2010 that made it illegal to talk or text while driving and increased the penalty to a two-thousand-dollar fine.  The bill defines a "mobile electronic device" as something that isn't permanently installed in your car that you use for texting, talking, playing music, navigation or the internet.  A broader definition of distracted driving is seen by some as a way to help law enforcement crack down on it.
