The Minnesota Senate has passed a bill to require drivers to use hands-free devices when they want to use their cellphones on the road.

The 56-10 vote Monday sent the bill back to the House for further work because senators added some provisions that weren't in the version the House passed last week. Gov. Tim Walz has said he'd sign a hands-free bill if it reaches his desk.
