Denver (AP) State lawmakers have approved a bill that would bar adults from talking on cell phones without handsfree devices while driving.

The bill - House Bill 1094 - would impose a total ban on cell phone use for drivers younger than 18.

Democratic Rep. Claire levy of Boulder says talking on a phone requires more attention than using a music player or other device.

The House Transportation and Energy Committee on Tuesday approved the bill and sent it to the appropriations committee to review the estimated $613,000 cost of enforcing the measure, which will be offset by $430,000 in revenue the first year.
