MADISON, Wis. (AP) -

Republicans are moving a bill through the Wisconsin Legislature that would prohibit drivers from using cell phones in construction zones.

The measure would ban drivers from using phones that require the use of their hands in construction zones when workers are present.

Violators would face forfeitures ranging from $20 to $40 for a first offense and $50 to $100 for a second offense within a year.
