by Doug Robinson Massachusetts has joined into the battle to fight distracted

driving; specifically, texting on your cell phone while driving. While Massachusetts is now the 30th state to join the nationwide ban on texting while driving, the state has taken their seriousness up a notch by “prohibiting drivers under age 18 from using any mobile electronic device while driving,” writes the Boston Globe. The new law goes into effect on September 30. Passed into law

by Governor Deval Patrick, the law also prohibits drivers 18 and older from not only reading messages on their cell phones, but also prohibits the writing of any text messages or e-mails. Searching on the Internet via cell phone while driving a car is also prohibited. A total ban on the use of cell phones has been placed into law

by nine states: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. The District of Columbia and Utah has named the offense “careless driving.”

submitted by Colin Manning Governor John Lynch and State

Transportation Commissioner George Campbell announced on September 22 that the State of New Hampshire has received final approval from the Federal Highway Administration to continue with the rebuilding and widening of a 19.8-mile section of Interstate 93 between Salem and Manchester.

“Interstate 93 is a critical piece of New Hampshire’s transportation infrastructure, and we have already begun significant work in widening the highway to meet today’s demands. This decision clears the way for us to continue making progress on

improving the road,” Governor Lynch said. “The widening of I-93 is a top priority of mine, and it is essential that we continue with the progress we have made in order to improve safety and expand opportunities for economic development and jobs.” The Federal Highway Administration has issued a Supplemental Record of Decision, which upholds a 2005 Record of Decision that concluded “the Four-Lane Alternative is the Environmentally Preferred Alternative since it best balances the need to provide safe and efficient transportation with social, economic, and natural environment concerns.” A lawsuit had questioned the widening of the highway to four lanes.

“This decision allows us to continue the progress that’s already been underway in addressing Red List Bridges and upgrading interchanges on Interstate 93,” said Commissioner Campbell. “This completes the environmental process and we are now moving forward to diligently address growing safety concerns and traffic demands for the thousands of motorists utilizing this vital corridor.” The project involves widening I-93 to a

four-lane highway in each direction. It also includes improvements for five interchanges and local roads, and replaces 19 red list bridges within the project corridor.

NH Continues to Lead Nation for Trust Services and Trust Service Jobs

submitted by Colin Manning New Hampshire, which has the seventh friendliest business climate in the country, continues to be a national leader in financial trust services, which is creating good-paying jobs in the state. Governor John Lynch recently signed legislation reforming the

state’s trust laws and continuing the state’s reputation as the best state for trust management services. “Reforming our trust laws is part of an overall effort to keep New Hampshire one of the most business-friendly states in the nation, which will continue attract and retain good, high-paying jobs in the

financial services industry,” Governor Lynch said. The trust law reforms were in two separate bills. Senate Bill 421

improves and streamlines rules governing “family trust companies,” encouraging these family-run businesses to locate in New Hampshire so that in-state firms in the legal, financial, and other sectors can better provide services to these trusts. House Bill 1607 includes a provision that confirms long-standing rules that the state interest and dividends tax does not apply to trusts that have only out-of-state beneficiaries.

Largest High School Essay Contest Opens, Focuses on American Citizenship

submitted by Rachel Gillespie U.S. high school students and their

teachers are invited to compete for nearly $115,000 in prize money by participating in the Bill of Rights Institute’s fifth annual Being an American Essay Contest. Top prize winners and their teachers will also receive all-expenses paid trips to the nation’s capital. The largest high school essay contest in the country, awarding 180 students and teachers with cash prizes and attracting more than 50,000 essays last year, explores the rights and responsibilities of American citizenship. The contest is administered by the Bill of Rights Institute, a non- profit educational organization in the Washington, DC area devoted to educating children about the Constitution and Founding principles. The sponsors include the History Channel and the Stuart Family Foundation. “This contest is unique in that it gives students the opportunity to think about the important civic values communicated in our Founding documents, and embodied by American civic heroes,” said Dr. Jason

Ross, Bill of Rights Institute Vice President of Education Programs. “This context is vital to helping students see their own acts of good citizenship as a meaningful part of the American experiment of self- government.” Specifically, students are asked to share their thoughts on American citizenship by answering the following question: “What civic value do you believe is most essential to being an American?” The top three student winners and their

teachers from each of the nine geographical regions will be announced at a special Washington, DC Awards Gala in the spring of 2011, where they will be awarded cash prizes of $5,000 (first place), $1,000 (second place), and $500 (third place). The winning students will also explore the nation’s capital, meet contemporary American heroes and national leaders, and visit national landmarks. Additionally, the contest will award 126 honorable mention prizes of $100 to seven students and their teachers from each region. “The contest not only honors and awards

sponsoring teachers, but also equips them with free lesson plans and other supplemental materials that meet state and national academic standards so they can easily incorporate the essay contest into their classrooms,” said Being an American Essay Contest Director John Croft. Nearly 100,000 students have participated in the essay contest since it began in 2006. Now in its fifth year, the contest is the largest high school essay contest in the country. “The Being an American Essay Contest

is a wonderful way to awaken students’ interest in the ideas of the American Founding. The Stuart Family Foundation is honored to be one of the Contest’s supporters,” said Stuart Family Foundation Executive Director Truman Anderson. Complete contest details can be found

below. Further information, including submission criteria, lesson plans, and background information on the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Founders and other Americans who have contributed to America’s shared civic values, are available at
