Arizona lawmakers are renewing a push for legislation to prohibit young drivers from using cell phones while behind the wheel.

The Senate is scheduled to Monday on a bill to prohibit young people driving with beginner permits or graduated licenses from using wireless communications devices while driving.

Arizona is now nearly wide-open territory for cell phone use by drivers, with the only school bus drivers subject to a statewide ban.

Earlier efforts to get a full ban on hand-held cell-phone use while driving were rejected as was a proposal to ban texting while driving.

Phoenix and Tucson have implemented bans on texting while driving, with Tucson's taking effect on Sunday.
