The measure was approved by a vote of 27-20 Thursday, one day after the bill to allow speed-monitoring cameras statewide near schools and highway work zones statewide failed by one vote.The Senate barely mustered enough votes to limit debate to force a vote after opponents attempted a filibuster.Opponents said the measure would be a far-reaching invasion of privacy and an unwieldy revenue raiser. Supporters said the bill would improve safety to vulnerable schoolchildren and highway workers. Previous Stories:
