PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Senate has voted to reject a bill requiring cities and towns to get voter approval if they want to use photo radar or red light enforcement.

The proposal by Republican Sen. Steve Smith of Maricopa failed on a 13-17 vote Monday but could return under rules allowing a second vote. It is the latest in a series of bills that emerge each year to limit the use of electronic speed and red light enforcement.

Senate Bill 1520 requires cities and towns to give voters a chance to approve photo enforcement at the next general election.

Another photo enforcement bill has passed the Senate and awaits House action. Senate Bill 1241 would ban photo radar on state highways but affect just two cities.
