Move to ban red-light cameras in Texas stalls. The bill may die, but will it be reborn?

A plan to turn red-light cameras off across Texas has stalled.

Supporters are working to rally last-minute support for the legislative proposal even as some political insiders privately say the measure supported by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott may well fall short this session.

That’s because House Transportation Committee Chairman Terry Canales, an Edinburg Democrat, told media this week that he’s not moving the bill by state Rep. Jonathan Stickland, R-Bedford, out of his committee because of concerns that crashes could rise if red light cameras are removed from intersections across the state.

Unless Canales changes his mind, the bill likely is dead this session.
