BY EMMA PLATOFF

Gov. Greg Abbott on June 6 signed into law a bill that creates a statewide ban on texting while driving.

The measure, authored by state Rep. Tom Craddick, R-Midland, goes into effect Sept. 1. This is the fourth session in a row Craddick has tried to pass such a ban.

“By enacting this public safety legislation, the governor is saving lives by deterring this dangerous and deadly behavior," Craddick said in a statement. "For a long time, Texas has needed this law to prevent the loss of life in unnecessary and preventable crashes and we finally have it.”

State funding cuts force school districts to slash costs

BY ALIYYA SWABY

Doug Rice will take over next school year as principal of a single-campus rural school district east of Amarillo, close to the Oklahoma border.
