Billboard Battle
(2008-07-14)
(wgvu) -
Another battle over billboards is brewing
in Michigan.
Environmental groups are upset about legislation they say would
undermine the state's cap on the number of billboards allowed along
Michigan highways.
The outdoor advertising industry argues the new proposal
wouldn't change the overall number of billboards allowed on state
roads.
The two sides disagree over how current law affects some 3,000
billboards that have been allowed to stay up, even though they
don't meet spacing requirements.
Conservation groups and the industry differ over whether those
billboards should be torn down and not replaced.
