Money talks while Illinoisans walk

The Illinois House voted to ban red light cameras, but only in towns with less than 25,000 residents.  

Excerpted from ChicagoTribune.com:

"The legislation would make the cameras illegal in municipalities that are not home rule — generally towns with a population of less than 25,000 — starting in 2017.

Cities that have home rule powers, such as Chicago and dozens of suburbs like Des Plaines, Skokie, Oak Lawn and Rosemont, would not be affected. Sponsoring Rep. David McSweeney indicated that the ban would apply to suburbs such as Blue Island, Forest Park, Hickory Hills, Westchester, Villa Park, Libertyville and Fox River Grove."
 
How much do you wanna bet that that Illinois House members live in Blue Island, Forest Park, Hickory Hills, Westchester, Villa Park, Libertyville, and Fox River Grove?
 
In addition, I have personally noticed yellow light times varying in Chicago, (always shorter), than usual.  Although admittedly not lately.  When I have noticed diminished yellow times, its been late at night, and I don't drive through Chicago late night any more.
