I understand the facts. Obama is the one behind this. He couldn't get the assault weapon ban so he moves on to another tact. What three branches? I see only one lately, the King

Any wonder that Israel is concerned about Iran? They have been threatened with annihilation and it seems the Dems and President O aren't the least bit concerned. In fact, we are playing right into their hands with this ridiculous attempt at an agreement with Iran. More sanctions - not less!

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.
