Auditors who work for the Pennsylvania state government are no longer allowed to text while driving. The state’s auditor general, who said the practice is not a problem for auditors in particular, issued the ban because of rising concerns about safety risks.

The edict follows President Obama’s executive order that prohibits federal employees from texting or using work cell phones while driving government cars and conducting government business via phone from their own cars.

The Pennsylvania Legislature is considering several bills to ban anyone in the state from texting while driving, as 10 other states have done.

The auditor’s office is the first Pennsylvania agency to issue the ban for its employees.
