Resistance to Digital Billboards

The Charlotte Observer finally shines a little light on the proposed bill to liberate digital billboards in NC, sponsored in the General Assembly by Republican used car dealer Sen. Harry Brown of Onslow County.

There are still a few environmentally friendly Republicans extant -- a very few -- and in Charlotte at least they're speaking up against allowing digital billboards every 1,500 feet. Mr. Brown's proposed law would also disable local governments from controlling signage on their highways or from regulating the cutting of trees.

Like Republicans who actually believe in evolution, these mildly "environmental" Republicans will likely be run out of the party by next Tuesday.
