The Virginia House and Senate have passed an amended version of a texting and driving bill, which reduced the fine for violators.
The original version of the bill called for a $250 fine and made texting and driving a primary offense. The Governor's amendments reduced the fine to $125, while keeping it a primary offense. A second offense would carry a fine of $250, instead of $500. The amendments also add training for police departments.
Senators voted in favor of the bill 36-4. The bill is now heading back to the Governor's desk.
