"We are not removing the cameras that are already there," Artiles said. "If it's a safety issue what we're doing is basically saying the local governments are not profiteering from it."
New red light cameras would no longer be allowed under a wide ranging transportation proposal that received the go ahead Thursday from a House subcommittee.
"Should it get agendaed there will be a discussion from every interested party," Hooper said in regard to the bill's pending appearance before his subcommittee. "There are some camera companies that should want to do that, some government representatives that will want to do that.

A similar proposal failed to advance last session, but lawmakers included a provision in an omnibus transportation bill (HB 7125) that is intended to make it tougher for local governments to issue tickets to drivers caught on camera turning right on red.
