All Points: End of Arlington’s red-light cameras?

Tuesday, Sep. 09, 2014

Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector Ron Wright has canceled his agreement with the Arlington City Council to withhold vehicle registration renewals from people who refuse to pay fines for violations caught by red-light cameras. With no way to make everyone pay, Councilman Robert Rivera wants to do away with the cameras entirely. Other city officials point to a sharp decrease in accidents at camera-monitored intersections. Should Wright perform the service to help Arlington collect its fines, or should the council remove the cameras?

Under current law, companies can reduce some of their tax liability on global income (revenue earned outside the U.S.) if they are headquartered abroad. Some policymakers say this is unpatriotic. Others say it’s commonsense and proof the U.S. needs to close loopholes and lower corporate tax rates. Is this the tipping point? Is it time for comprehensive tax reform?
