Highlights from the Legislature on Thursday

” The House voted 35-29 to kill a measure (Senate Bill 143) that would have allowed cities to use photo radar to catch speeders on streets with speed limits up to 55 mph. Currently, they can use it only near parks, schools, construction zones and streets with speed limits under 35 mph. Opponents said the bill would have expanded a program that many drivers find offensive and oppressive.

” The House tentatively approved a measure that would make it a crime to post the personal information of a judge, magistrate or prosecutor on the Internet if the information would pose an imminent and serious safety threat (House Bill 1316). The bill faces a third reading before it goes to the Senate.
