City Council cell phone bill now in effect, sort of

The Post's Yoav Gonen kicks off 2008 with a status update on the cell phone ban. He notes that the bill the City Council passed in July and then reaffirmed with an override of the mayor's veto in September allowing kids to carry their phones to school is now in effect. But it won't make a difference to kids and their families — the mayor isn't wavering on prohibiting kids from having their phones at school. Cell phone ban opponents go to court next month in their suit against the city, and council members hope their bill, ineffectual as it is right now, will be ammunition against the ban.
