Later today the House Transportation Committee will consider a bill to ban texting while driving statewide.

The committee is expected to hear testimony from the family of Alex Brown, a teenager from Wellman who was killed in a car crash while texting.

The Brown family has traveled around Texas, including to Abilene, to encourage people to put down their phones while driving. 

The family recently received a brand new home from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

There are five bills submitted this session which would ban texting while driving.
