There are all kinds of proposals in the Legislature for cracking down on cities’ use of automated traffic cameras, and a bill filed today offers the most sweeping solution yet.

That’s what’s demanded by activists like the ones who helped pack a committee hearing Tuesday on bills related to the cameras. A Puyallup couple, Nick and Tiffany Sherwood, founded BanCams.com.
Other proposals out there:
- Rep. Jim McCune, R-Graham, would require cities to get approval
