DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Cities like Cedar Rapids could soon lose millions of dollars if the Senate approves a ban on traffic cameras.

The Iowa House approved a measure banning the use of those cameras Tuesday night in a vote 58-42.

Supporters of the ban said the cameras remove an important human element from the enforcement of traffic laws.

Those opposed argued they are effective in reducing accidents.

Governor Terry Banstand said he will sign the bill if it reaches his desk.
