Last year the North Carolina state legislature passed a law allowing billboard companies to chop down more trees near their NC billboards. This new law even overrules local town rules on billboards. These companies are now lobbying the NC Department

"I think that I shall never see a billboard lovely as a tree. Indeed unless the billboards fall I'll never never never see a tree at all" ~ Ogden Nash

Billboards were restricted on Federal highways in the 1960's, after the above poem was written, followed by state and local restrictions. I'm old enough to remember the hideous and sad proliferation of billboards before that time. Billboard companies want to undo that progress and increase their profits by making the roads uglier and further messing with the environment. Signed and noted, thanks, Cher.
