VENICE, FL - Governor Rick Scott will officially make it illegal to text while driving today.

He will sign the bill at the office of Senator Nancy Detert just before noon on Friday.

This is the culminating event of what has been a five year effort by Sen. Detert to get the bill passed.

ABC 7 Reporter John McQuiston is at the signing, and will bring you more about the efforts of Sen. Detert.
