A bill banning traffic cameras in Iowa has passed the House, but faces stiff opposition in the Senate.

The bill, House File 2450, passed Tuesday by a 58-42 vote.  The vote was mostly along party lines.  The final vote was taken shortly after 8 p.m.

The bill’s sponsor, Walt Rogers, (R) Cedar Falls, delayed bringing the bill up for debate earlier in the session because he thought he didn’t have the votes in the House.

Now the bill moves on the Iowa Senate, but leaders say it will probably not be brought up for debate.
