Poll: Are You in Favor of a Congressional Ban on In-Flight Mobile Phone Calls

Republicans and Democrats in the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure approved a bill that was introduced earlier this week to prohibit passengers from placing or receiving phone calls on their mobile phones during domestic flights.

The bill, somewhat aptly named “Prohibiting In-Flight Voice Communications on Mobile Wireless Devices Act of 2013,” still has to make its way through Congress, and comes as the Federal Communications Commission is considering lifting a ban on the use of mobile phones and mobile broadband services on airplanes above 10,000 feet.

Regardless of your position on in-flight phone calls, do you believe that Congress should address this via legislation?
