A bill regulating traffic cameras received approval from a house subcommittee Thursday.

The legislation requires cities or counties to obtain a permit from the Department of Transportation before installing a new, stationary automated traffic camera on a primary road.

The Windsor Heights Police Chief spoke in opposition of the bill, while a representative from the Iowa ACLU voiced support.

The bill now moves onto the full transportation committee.
