Text-messaging: Michigan needs a law that says you can't do it while driving

A 17-year-old struck a police car while text-messaging a friend in this Detroit-area suburb.  The cop got hurt.  It was pretty dumb and dangerous.

My question:  how long before a Michigan legislator gets a bill drafted and introduces it to make it illegal to drive and text message?  Then legislators from other states will see it and sponsor the same thing.

Would a new law keep drivers from being this stupid or would it be lawmakers trying to justify their existence?  There's plenty of precedent for the latter.
