PHOENIX (AP) - The Legislature’s yearly effort to eliminate photo speed and red light enforcement in Arizona has notched a small victory and now it will be up to Gov. Doug Ducey to weigh in.

The Senate on Thursday gave final approval to a bill banning photo radar on state highways that will affect just two cities.

The Senate voted 16-14 to approve Senate Bill 1241. It previously was approved by the House on a 32-26 vote.

The measure by Republican Sen. Debbie Lesko of Peoria affects speed cameras in the communities of El Mirage and Star Valley. Lesko’s bill was narrowly crafted to increase its odds of survival since the Legislature has repeatedly rejected statewide bans in recent years.

The House and Senate rejected several broader measures targeting photo enforcement this year.
