A proponent of a proposed texting and driving ban in the state of Texas is none too happy that the measure has failed to achieve passage this legislative session, and he’s taken to writing an editorial which lambasts the lawmaker whom he sees as responsible for the failure. The Midland House Member calls out the Chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee for not even bringing the matter up for a vote despite what he calls widespread support for a ban on texting at the wheel at the state level.

Although the House member is saddened by the fact that a vote was never even held, he has pledged not to give up the fight.
