SSB 1002 allows a peace officer to stop or detain a person solely texting while driving. The fine for this violation remains $30. SSB 1020 eliminates the prohibition of a person leaving a vehicle unattended without first stopping the engine.
Projects paid for with federal money have certain requirements that state and local money does, such as Davis-Bacon prevailing wage rates, Buy American provisions mandating the use of American steel and environmental impact studies. These requirements would no longer exist if SSB 1003 becomes law.
