GOOD: Iowa lawmakers consider ban on traffic cameras.

Gov. Terry Branstad said Wednesday he would sign legislation to ban traffic-monitoring devices if the General Assembly sends him a bill this session.

A group of 24 House Republicans introduced legislation Wednesday to prohibit the traffic-monitoring devices, effective immediately, and to have all the automated traffic law enforcement equipment removed from Iowa roadways by July 1.

Also Wednesday, a Des Moines radio talk show host and the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa delivered petitions bearing more than 10,000 signatures of Iowans opposing the red-light or speed cameras operated by a growing number of cities in Iowa, including Davenport and Muscatine.

More bipartisan support for civil liberties.
