Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under this bill, advertising signs may be placed on bus shelters located on state
trunk highways. Current law prohibits placing advertising signs within a highway
right-of-way, subject to certain exceptions. This bill creates another exception for
signs placed on bus shelters located on state trunk highways, subject to limitations.
