The Republican-controlled Maine Senate has supported a bill that would prohibit people from using hand-held cellphones while driving.

The Senate on Tuesday voted 24-10 in favor of rejecting the Transportation Committee's recommendation that the bill be killed. The Senate then gave the bill initial approval, sending it to the Democratic-led House for consideration.
