Iowa House panel votes to scoop 60% of revenue from local traffic cameras (HB125)

Sioux City and other local governments would be allowed to install traffic cameras under legislation approved by an Iowa House committee Tuesday, but only if they share the revenue with the state.

“Probably the biggest difference of this bill is addressing the use of the dollars,” Public Safety Chairman Jarad Klein, R-Keota, said about House Study Bill 125. Cities would retain

40 percent of the revenue — after overhead costs are paid, he said.
