AUGUSTA — A year after Maine lawmakers rejected a bill requiring warnings about cellular phone use, a Sanford lawmaker is back with a new version of the legislation.

Democratic Rep. Andrea Boland’s new bill (LD 1014) faces a hearing today before the Energy, Utilities and Technology Committee. It calls for warning labels on cellphones, and notices would have to be posted by cellphone retailers warning users of potential health hazards and how to use cellphones more safely.

A year ago, a weakened version of a similar measure was rejected. It directed Maine’s health website to include links to existing federal cellphone advisories.
