(Olympia, WA)  --  A measure to prohibit holding hand-held devices while driving is now law in Washington.  Governor Jay Inslee moved the effective date from 2019 to mid-July of this year, saying the bill is too important to wait for the provisions to become law.  Current state law only prohibits texting or holding a phone to the ear while driving.  The law won't apply to a driver who's using a personal electronic device to contact emergency services.
