Stop SB 607

Save Missouri's Scenery!

Click here to take action and send your elected officials a message!

Last year, Governor Nixon fortunately vetoed a bill that would have launched a new wave of billboard blight across Missouri.

But Big Billboard is back and a new bill, SB 607, once again promises to severely harm the Missouri landscape. The bill would allow thousands of billboards that do not meet current spacing and other protective standards to be converted to even more distracting digital signs. This will add more motorist distraction and further decimate the landscape. In addition, SB 607 changes state law to ensure that excessive billboard clutter is a permanent part of our major highways, even as MODOT spends billions to widen I-70 and other projects.

Missouri can not afford weakened billboard laws. We can do better!

Scenic Missouri and Scenic America urge Missourians to voice your opinion. Visit our Action Alert today where you can learn more about this issue and make a difference.

Background

Digital Billboards Education

The billboard industry desperately wants to increase their bottom line by bringing a digital landscape to Missouri. But cities across Missouri, including Saint Louis, Columbia, Kansas City, Jefferson City (and many smaller ones) wisely have protected community character and motorists by prohibiting these distracting and energy-consuming signs. Is your community protected against this new form of blight? Be prepared for them.
