House Highway Bill:
What Impacts Out of Home?
House Democrats unveiled their infrastructure bill June 3.
Here’s what it means for out of home media:
- Billboard regulations (Highway Beautification Act of 1965) would remain in place. Federal law requires that billboard owners and landowners be compensated if government removes billboards. (Note: the US Supreme Court is considering whether to take a case from Tennessee that says its billboard law is unconstitutional on free speech grounds).
- The House bill would require US Department of Transportation to update the traffic-sign Manual to accommodate signs directing motorists to charging stations. (Note: commercial advertising is not allowed on highway right of way).
