  HB 367 - PROHIBITED HIGHWAY ADVERTISING                                      
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE JAMES, Chair of the Tourism and                               
  Transportation Subcommittee, brought up the issue of                         
  signage.                                                                     
                                                                               
  DAVID KAMRATH, STAFF FOR REPRESENTATIVE HARLEY OLBERG,                       
  testified regarding House Bill 367, noting that a proposed                   
  committee substitute will have the same wording as Senate                    
  Bill 157.  It would allow a tourism related business to have                 
  up to four signs within fifty miles.                                         
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE VEZEY stated that penalties needed to be                      
  higher.  He said he supported the concept, but wanted to see                 
  reasonable guidelines for maintenance of signs, and                          
  limitations imposed.                                                         
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE JAMES said she feared the bill allowed too                    
  many signs.  The committee agreed to consider this bill with                 
  some changes, agreeing there is a need to facilitate                         
  directions for visitors.  Staff person Barbara Cotting                       
  agreed to continue working on this with David Kamrath.
