It could soon be illegal for drivers in Missouri City to text or email while driving. City council members gave preliminary approval Monday night to an ordinance banning texting and emailing while behind the wheel. It must be approved for a second time, and would go into effect June 1.

Missouri City officials say police officers would have to see drivers using the device.
