The millionaire tax is the political version of two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. As 100% of the people if 2% ought to pay more and a good majority of the self-centered 98% will vote "heck yeah...it doesn't affect me". A good example of why we have representative government and not a true democracy.

Mabey the "on time in jeopardy" is a little alarmist this early. However the longer they hold off the harder "on budget" becomes if you plan on keeping the original target date. although I don't think its uncommon for deadlines to get pushed back a time or two on a project this size.

Missouri bills could put stop to red-light cameras

1 year, 4 months ago From kmbc.com

Proposal would divert funds to schools, limit data storage

If State Sen. Will Kraus gets his way, it could make it hard for Kansas City's camera system to continue. The city has already put enforcement of its red-light cameras on hold pending the results of a court challenge.

Drivers said they hope someone hits the brakes on the cameras for good.

"I think everybody, the first time they get one, feels a little bit violated," said driver Kathleen Jaros. "Like they have been tracked by Big Brother."

The cameras, which keep an electronic eye on some of Kansas City's most dangerous intersections, has some people seeing red.

Jaros said both times she was ticketed, she thought the lights were yellow.

"I think it's a money-making scheme, predominantly," she said. "I don't have a sense it makes the streets any safer."

Kraus has filed two bills for lawmakers in Jefferson City to consider. One would send any fines collected to local school districts and not city governments. He said automated traffic enforcement systems are an "untruthful revenue source."

His second bill allows cities to hold the data that the cameras collect for 30 days.
