At the Capitol: Red Lights, Water Issues

Florida Current

Even though a repeal on the red-light camera law passed in committee 10-8, the closeness of the vote shows the bill may not last long, the Bradenton Herald reports. While some lawmakers say the cameras are just money-makers, others lawmakers and interest groups insist they save lives.

Meanwhile, a bill was filed that would mandate water districts to come up with a five-year plan for cleaning up springs, the Florida Current reports. Also, lawmakers from South Florida are pushing for ways to deal with the effects of climate change and rising sea levels, according to the Current.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
