Maine Highway Signs Bill Draws Wide Opposition

Lawmakers in Maine are joining business owners and local officials in speaking out against a bill they say will hurt tourism in towns across the state.

The measure would remove nearly a third of the signs on Maine highways that direct motorists to secondary locations.

Officials with the Maine Department of Transportation and the Maine Turnpike Authority, which support the bill, say the law needs to be changed for Maine's interstates to comply with federal highway sign standards.
