Instead of just phasing it out,
Cole's amendment would put an end to
the tax- which is a big source of

revenue for localities.

Under the current phase out, the
state pays localities about 70- percent
of the tax.

Cole put a similar measure in two
years ago.

It passed in the House but was
defeated by a Senate committee.

*CG locator Richmond

Delegate Bob Purkey thinks so.

He's proposing a bill that would
allow localities to install cameras at
no more than 25- intersections at a
time.

Drivers who run a red light would

face a 50- dollar fine, but would not
damage their driving record.

Similar bills have met a swift
death in the House Militia and Police
committee, but this year it was
referred to the Transportation
Committee- where it could get a green
light.

If the bill gets out of
committee, Purkey believes it will pass
in the House, but not everyone is
convinced.
