Cravaack Introduces Bill to Eliminate Federal Sign Brightness Mandate

Congressman Chip Cravaack is pushing a bill which would eliminate the federal mandate that requires states and local municipalities must keep their road and street signs bright enough to meet federal government brightness standards, allowing them to decide when signs are replaced.
The freshman Republican says State and local governments are still struggling under the weight of lower revenues brought on by the recent recession.   He says any mandate from Washington forcing municipalities to unnecessarily replace perfectly adequate street signs hurts their ability to effectively spend scarce taxpayer dollars elsewhere.
The 8th District Congressman says the bill has the support of numerous mayors and council members across the district.
