•Require local governments to approve any new camera contracts or renewals in a public meeting.

•Requires local governments to enact ordinances allowing traffic cameras. 

•Require local governments to show evidence the cameras are needed for safety before installation. 

•Mandate local governments submit reports on traffic camera use every year to the state. 

•Noncompliance with rules results in suspension of traffic camera use. (Branch)
