Denver (AP) - Colorado drivers may not be forced to use hands-free devices while talking on their cell phones.

The Senate on Monday overhauled a bill aimed at cracking down at talking and texting behind the wheel.

Teen drivers would still be barred from any talking or texting under the measure (House Bill 1094).

But only texting would be illegal for adults. The bill as amended would no longer require adults to use hands-free devices while talking on their cell phones.

It faces another vote in the senate before it will be sent back to the house to consider those changes.
