Subject: Modernizing Outdoor Advertising with Energy Efficient Lighting
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation to change the outdoor advertisers’ ability to use energy efficient lighting.  This change will amend the Outdoor Advertising Control Act of 1971 and allow for energy efficient lighting to be installed on outdoor advertising devices while maintaining compliance with the federal regulations.  My legislation will only affect existing non-structural lighting fixtures and will not alter the rules for bracing, guy wires, or other reinforcing devices.  Also, this legislation will not authorize new lighting in areas where it was previously prohibited. 
Please join me in sponsoring this important piece of legislation to modernize the Commonwealth’s outdoor advertising rules in an efficient, environmentally-friendly, and federally conforming manner.

Introduced as SB1093
