Subject: HB 407
Date: Mon Mar 02 15:59:11 MST 2015
It has come to my attention that you will hear a bill this Tuesday morning (HB 407) sponsored by Rep. Mike Noel.  It proposes an amendment to the current rules governing Outdoor Advertising along our Scenic Byways and All-American Road.  

I strongly oppose this bill. Its passage would threaten our number one industry in rural Southern Utah (tourism), our federal funding for these roads, ultimately remove this routes from Scenic designation and create a general cluttered eyesore along some of the most beautiful landscape in the world. It is my experience that people from all over this nation and the world come here to marvel at the beautiful resources of our land; not to read outdoor signage. On second thought, neither do I or other locals for that matter. Please stop Mike Noel’s HB407.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
