SCR 1029 Passes Senate, on to the House; Redflex, ATS on brink of being voted out of AZ

March 10, 2011

The decision in the Arizona Senate went the way most were expecting for SCR 1029 which would put photo ticketing to a state-wide vote.

The final vote count was 18-12. Two R’s, Michele Reagan and Adam Driggs along with one D, Kyrsten Sinema switched from their No vote on SB 1352 to a Yes vote on SCR 1029, which has the same language.

It is not yet known how things will play out in the AZ House, but a decision on that floor is expected next week or the following.

If this vote to bring down the scameras all across Arizona is approved by the House, it will skip over Governor Jan Brewer’s desk and go straight to a citizens vote. The rule is that the Governor has no say on SCRs. However, let’s not get ahead of ourselves

It is of utmost importance to begin contacting AZ House reps today!

They must know, just as the Senate members found out from hundreds of your emails, that the citizens of Arizona want ALL the cameras to come down and deserve to vote on it.

Below is a roster and contact info for each. Please make it a priority to send them your thoughts about photo ticketing, even if it’s just a sentence or two. Give them a story, anecdote or data you’ve seen that shows the cameras cause erratic driving and more collisions. The more personal, the better.

We are getting closer….

Arizona senators using a Redflex lobbyist’s false arguments

March 4, 2011

Just as many members of the US House and Senate don’t understand the constitution, it seems many members of Arizona legislature have the same struggles with our state version.

The argument against SB1352, the Photo Radar Prohibition Bill most used by the Republicans who voted against it seems to be coming straight from Redflex: “The state shouldn’t tell the cities what to do.”
