New York may have speed cameras approved by the summer.

Another state politician joined the fight for speed cameras, the Daily News reported today.

Jeffrey Klein, a Bronx Democrat, will pick up the bill, according to the newspaper, and hopes to pass it by June.

The proposed legislation would launch a pilot program that would put 20 cameras in city school speed zones.

Last month, Council members stated support for the bill – Council Speaker Christine Quinn cited speeding as the No. 1 cause of fatal crashes in the city.
