MIDLAND - The City of Midland backed a bill that's being discussed right now in Austin.

On Tuesday, the Midland City Council sent a letter of support to Austin for House Bill 80, a texting and driving ban.

The bill was created by State Representative Tom Craddick but was vetoed by former Texas Governor Rick Perry twice.

Now there is new hope that the bill will be passed after hitting Governor Greg Abbott's desk.
