Cedar Hill has avoided being in red-light camera limbo, while Duncanville may not be so lucky. The Texas House’s version of Texas Department of Transportation sunset renewal forbids cities from either starting or renewing red-light camera contracts after June 1.

The Cedar Hill City Council took care of that business at its May 26 meeting, extending its contract with American Traffic Solutions by 15 years.

That said, the state senate’s version of TxDOT renewal has no such restrictions. The two different bills will have to go tp conference committee. With this year’s Lege almost done, such conference negotiations will have to be brief.
