Cities using cameras that automatically ticket motorists for running red lights or speeding would be banned in Iowa under a bill that has advanced to the House.
The House Appropriations Committee moved the bill 14 to 11 making it available for debate on the floor this year.
Its fate in the Senate is unsure but Gov. Terry Branstad has said he'd consider signing it if it reaches him.
Cameras are used in Cedar Rapids, Clive, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Muscatine, and Sioux City.
The cities combined stand to lose more than $7 million a year from the tickets. The measure requires the cameras to be removed by July 1.
City officials say the cameras reduce crashes and injuries resulting from crashes.
