PHOENIX (AP) - Ariz. Gov. Jan Brewer wants to let the state's contract for speed enforcement cameras on Arizona highways expire later this year and have the program go away unless voters authorize it.
Brewer budget director John Arnold said Friday that the governor's position on the program is that "she doesn't like it."
However, he says Brewer's administration would implement the program if voters want it returned.
Under a program initiated by former Gov. Janet Napolitano, the Department of Public Safety signed a 2-year contract in 2008 with Redflex Inc. for mobile and fixed cameras.
Some legislators have proposed a ballot measure to repeal the camera program. But it's not clear whether that will advance in the Legislature and reach the November ballot now that Brewer says she also wants the program to go away.
