Hicks-Hudson urges Gov. to veto restrictions on traffic safety cameras
Says legislation threatens public safety, home rule for local communities

House Assistant Minority Whip and state Rep. Paula Hicks Hudson (D-Toledo) last week sent a letter* to Republican Governor Mike DeWine urging him to veto provisions in House Bill (HB) 62, the state's two-year transportation budget, that would penalize cities using traffic safety cameras.

"I encourage you to veto this legislative overreach that threatens the safety and security of those who use our roadways and further erodes the long-standing tradition of home rule in the Buckeye State," said Hicks-Hudson.

HB 62 requires cities to file all traffic camera citation cases in municipal court. It also mandates cities to report to the state how much they collected in revenue. The state would then deduct that amount from the city's share of the state's local government fund.

HB 62 passed the General Assembly Tuesday. It currently awaits the governor's signature to be signed into law.
