Default Ohio House Puts Financial Squeeze On Camera Enforcement

Full article at http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/64/6438.asp

Ohio Senate to take up measure to eliminate profit motive from speed cameras following overwhelming House passage.

"Under the proposal, municipalities using cameras would have to report to the state tax commissioner how much cash has been collected from motorists each year. The state would then deduct that amount from state aid payments to the city or town and direct the cash to a state fund dedicated to "enhance public safety" on roads and highways.

"We are simply determining that if jurisdictions choose to raise their revenue through issuing civil citations for red light/speed cameras, they need state money to that extent," Seitz said in a statement. "We are using our unquestionable power over the state budget to reallocate money to a state-run fund for road safety that was being expended for the benefit of those jurisdictions that rely on photo-enforcement revenues.""
