House backs red light camera ban

I noted yesterday that the Texas House this morning would consider Gary Elkins' HB 259, which would disallow cities from using cameras to give tickets to red light runners.

Not surprisingly, they voted 109-30 in favor of Elkins' bill. The Houston Chronicle
quoted Lt. Governor David Dewhurst opining that the Senate was likely to "look favorably" on the ban.
