WASHINGTON (AP) - States would be required to ban driving while texting or face the loss of highway funds under legislation being pushed by a group of senators.

New York Sen. Charles Schumer and three other Democrats plan to unveil the bill on Wednesday. It follows a study by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute that found that when drivers of heavy trucks texted, their collision risk was 23 times greater than when not texting.

Fourteen states and the District of Columbia ban texting while driving.

Under the Senate proposal, states would need to outlaw texting or e-mailing while operating a moving vehicle or lose 25 percent of their annual federal highway funding.
