E-M:/ Gov. Milliken on Billboard legislation



------------------------------------------------------------------------- Enviro-Mich message from "Hugh McDiarmid, Jr." -------------------------------------------------------------------------
Former Gov. William G. Milliken in today's Freep on legislation that would abolish some billboard restrictions in Michigan:
 
 

Gov. Jennifer Granholm has always been a proponent for Michigan's natural assets and a supporter of reasonable limitations on billboards. My hope is that should the state House of Representatives fail to pull the plug on this odious plan, Granholm will promptly veto it.

Michigan's spectacular vistas and natural beauty are among its most attractive and compelling assets. Protecting them from the billboard industry's crass assaults should be foremost in the minds of the people's representatives when they vote on this issue.
