Ascociitcd Full Lciw MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY MARCH 8 I960 7c Copy This Paper Conlli of Thrco One HO Bonus for control of billboards But legislatures must act to get their share By WILLIAM DICKINSON JR Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON Shares in a multi million dollar windfall from the federal government m a y go unclaimed by many states unless the legislatures put steam behind plans to regulate billboardadvertising along the new interstate highways Imp atient federal officials warn that the states have only until July 1 1961 to enter into antibillboard agreements with the Bureau of Public Roads un der the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1958 The act authorizes a onehaU of one per cent bonus in federa interstate highway payments for states which agree to regulate billboards within 660 feet o rights of way acquired since July 1 1956 The percentage is small but the cash stakes are large when it is remembere that the total federal contribu tion to state road funds may reach billion MARYLAND APPEARS to be the first state with roadside con trol standards high enough to meet present federal require ments It expects to receive up to million in billboard bonuses The legislatures of only 20 other states including those of Alaska and Hawaii are meet ing in regular session this year and many of these are nearing adjournment of their 1960 ses sions Fortyseven state legisla tures meet in Bureau of Public Roads offi cials complain that technicali ties in the federal act are being used by billboard interests to confuse state legislatures and to hinder passage of legislation needed to qualify for the federal dividend The federal standards sanc tion four types of signs along in terstate highways Directional v or other official signs and no iliees required or authorized by law signs advertising the sale or lease of property on which they are posted signs permitted by state law which advertise ac tivities conducted within 12 miles of their location signs giving information of interest to the traveling public that are erected under state law and are consistent with the national pol icy and standards SOME OF TH E legislatures may interpret the federal stand ards broadly too broadly for the Bureau of Public Roads If a defective state law bounces back for revision a special ses sion of the legislature may be necessary to bring the measure into conformance before the July 1 1961 deadline States which wait until the last mo ment to adopt the required leg islation stand in danger of miss ing out altogether The billboard industry denie that it is doing anything to ob struct adoption of the legal re strictions needed to qualify for the federal bonus Fred G Hus aey Washington representativ of the Outdoor Advertising Assn of America Inc promises tha members of the association are going to comply with and abid by the federal standards The state legislatures h a v been slow to act Hussey said because the final word on fed eral standards was not forth coming until last September Congress at that time amended the law to exempt from the na tional billboard control policy portions of the interstate system within existing boundaries of in corporated cities or already in areas statezoned for industrial and commercial use Hussey indicated that the bill board people entertain no hope that further concessions will be forthcoming from Congress and that their only interest now is to make sure that the states take full advantage of their bonus rights under the 1958 act DEAD END BRIDGE Dr J E Christopherson Cerro Gordo County coroner looks at the position of
