DENVER — A House committee advanced a bill Friday that would ban speeding and red-light cameras in the state.
It’s another attempt by state legislators to get rid of the cameras, which supporters of the ban say are nothing more than revenue generators.
But law enforcement officials in the state oppose the ban, claiming the cameras deter accidents at busy intersections. And local municipalities are against the bill, saying the decision should be made at the local level.
The bill was passed out of the House Appropriations Committee and will now go to the full House.
