But, none of those proposed cell phone bans were passed in the 78th Legislative Session.

On Monday NewsChannel 11 spoke with the office of Representative Jose Menendez. They say an erroneous e-mail helped spread incorrect information that a bill banning cell phones had been passed. Menendez's office has not found the source of that e-mail, but says that the Police Chief in Uvalde received a fax with that incorrect information from the Department of Public Safety.
