State lawmakers could adopt a statewide texting while driving ban during the upcoming legislative session.

Sen. Peter Wirth (D- Santa Fe) is sponsoring the bill.

Bernalillo County District Attorney Kari Brandenburg said she is also supporting the bill.

Texting will driving currently falls under the state's distracted driving law, but is not addressed directly.
