(CNN) - In Washington, lawmakers on the House Transportation Committee approved a new bill Tuesday that would ban talking on your cell phone while flying.
The proposed bill comes after the FCC announced last year it planned to lift its decades old ban on in-flight cell phone use.
The bill would allow use of mobile and tablet devices, but not voice communications.
Similar bills have been proposed in the senate.
According to a Quinnipiac University poll taken last December, 59 percent of Americans didn't want cell phones used on flights.
