GURNEE, Ill. – As part of her push for ethics reform, state Rep. Joyce Mason, D-Gurnee, introduced House Bill 129, a measure that would bring additional transparency to the process of red light camera lobbying.

“After learning that red light camera companies and lobbyists had been using bribes and other unethical actions to line their own pockets at the expense of hardworking taxpayers, I knew we had to take action to reform the industry,” Mason said. “Using government resources to take advantage of the public is inexcusable and has no place in our state, which is why I introduced House Bill 129. My legislation would require all red light camera lobbyists who work with local units of government to register with the state’s publicly-accessible database of lobbyists and ensure there is greater accountability and transparency in the industry.”

Mason’s district is home to several intersections that are monitored by red light cameras. Mason’s House Bill 129 was introduced in response to an expansive red light camera corruption scandal that was first reported on in 2019.

“Residents deserve honesty in every part of their government, and I’m committed to fighting for legislation that ensures we as elected officials are consistently giving that to them,” Mason said. “It’s time to put an end to corruption in red light camera lobbying. I urge my colleagues to join me in supporting my push for this much-needed reform.”
