Budget Issue: Automated speed enforcement.
Program: Judiciary
Finding or Recommendation: Approve Governor's proposal to authorize local governments to use automated enforcement systems to identify individuals driving greater than the speed limit, but modify it to (1) establish fines identical to existing speeding fines, (2) deposit state's share of the revenues to the General Fund, and (3) increase oversight of fine collections. Also, consider changing how revenues would be allocated between the state and local governments and modifying the amount of projected fine revenues.
