In related news, State Representative Julie Parrish was driving the other day. KATU TV reports she was pulled over for violating a new cellphone law. She now faces a $265 fine. KATU broke the story because Parrish was looking at her phone for directions to KATU, where she had an interview scheduled. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
