A crackdown could be coming for students with cellphones.

A new state bill could ban or restrict their use at school.

Torrance Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi says his measure would require school boards to adopt their own policies.

He says research shows that having the devices can interfere with classroom learning and that many school districts have already banned their use.
