A Prince George's County lawmaker said he plans to scrap legislation that would have allowed nearly 100 speed cameras in the county to operate 24 hours a day.

Delegate Dereck E. Davis (D-District 25) of Mitchellville introduced the bill, which pertained to cameras in school zones throughout the county and its municipalities. He said will redraft the legislation to focus statewide.

"I am putting in a statewide bill that does something entirely different but consistent with the original intent," Davis told reporters Monday.
