Rep. Lifferth, HB407 is a special interest billboard bill being pushed by Reagan Outdoor Advertising. Utah is already overrun with billboards, as you see every day as you travel I-15. There is literally no other state that has the same level of permissiveness as respects billboards as does Utah. There is nothing good that can come from this bill, as even a substitute bill will ultimately be in the interest of Bill and Dewey Reagan, who have become quite wealthy as a result of the Legislature's largess, all to the detriment of Utah's scenic beauty. This bill is a poster child for poor public policy -- special interest legislation designed to benefit a politically connected industry. Please vote against it. Thank you, Mauritia Stephens
