Default Texas: Senator Bob Hall Kills Red Light Camera Ban

Full article at http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/66/6679.asp

Texas state senator moves to block House effort from banning red light cameras.

"The red light camera ban that gained the support of a veto-proof majority in the state House of Representatives was gutted on Wednesday by the Senate Transportation Committee. State Senator Bob Hall (R-Edgewood) introduced a committee substitute for his version of the bill that ensures any city that wishes to continue using cameras can continue doing so indefinitely.

"I was all for this bill until Senator Hall laid out the committee substitute," Arlington resident Kelly Cannon testified. "So I'm changing my stance to 'against' this bill. It's deja vu, 2017 all over again."

In 2017, Hall similarly used an amendment to turn a ban bill into a measure allowing Texas schools to use school buses as a platform for issuing automated tickets. Although the underlying bill did not pass, it encouraged the school bus photo ticketing company that went on to bankrupt Dallas County Schools and led to the felony conviction of five politicians and school officials."
