Red Light Camera Bill Could Die in State Senate

  Email   Print

Legislation prohibiting red-light camera enforcement, such as Murfreesboro's system, made it through one legislative committee but could hit a wall in the Senate.

Murfreesboro Post contributor Sam Stockard says a bill by Sen. Todd Gardenhire prohibiting municipalities from using red-light cameras received approval in the House Transportation Subcommittee but got a cool reception last Wednesday from state Sen. Jim Tracy in the Senate Transportation Committee.

Tracy, who chairs the committee, said he has spent two years already working on the legislation's parameters and adds he thinks it's an issue local governments need to decide. In-depth information on this story can be found at We also have a link to Sam's story on, keyword cameras.
