Lawmakers got a first chance to look over a bill that would prohibit using social media while driving today at the State Capitol.

A Senate committee discussed the proposed law that that would make it illegal to post to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media sites while operating a vehicle.

The bill's author, Senator Dale Erdey, says it closes the loopholes in the original texting and driving ban.

The bill left committee today with a few tweaks.
