Rep. Chris Corry backs amendment to allow police to access traffic safety cameras that catch crimes


During debate on House Bill 2384, which would expand and extend the use of traffic safety cameras by cities and counties, Rep. Chris Corry, R-Yakima, argued in favor of an amendment to improve public safety by letting law enforcement and prosecutors access footage with warrants or subpoenas to reduce crime and increase accountability. Corry also pointed out the footage could equally be used to exonerate a wrongly accused person for a crime. The amendment failed. Corry joined all other House Republicans in voting against the underlying bill on other traffic safety camera use, which passed along party lines 58-39.
