Illinois House committee advances red-light camera ban in wake of ex-Sen. Martin Sandoval pleading guilty to taking bribes from the industry
from Chicago Tribune
An Illinois House committee voted unanimously to advance a measure that would ban controversial red-light traffic cameras in many towns across the Chicago area and outside St. Louis. The full House in 2015 approved a similar measure, also sponsored by Republican state Rep. David McSweeney of Barrington Hills. But it was blocked in the Senate by then-Sen. Martin Sandoval, who pleaded guilty in federal court to accepting at least $70,000 in bribes to act as a "protector" for red-light camera company SafeSpeed.
