Lawmakers on the House Transportation Committee approve a new bill today 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.
