I urge you to vote NO on SB 164
I urge you to vote NO on SB 164, a bill that will give billboard companies the ability to cut trees along Georgia rights of way.
As a taxpayer, I help provide for the roadways and the trees along rights of way. A new survey by American Viewpoint finds more than 70% of Georgia voters oppose the State of Georgia allowing billboard companies to cut down trees on public property so that motorists can see billboards located on nearby private property.
These trees make travel in Georgia more pleasant for Georgians and visitors alike, thus enhancing tourism and its related economic benefits. The trees that will be cut now provide cooling, create oxygen, consume carbon dioxide, protect against erosion and reduce sediment in our streams.
I ask that, instead of giving preference to special interests, you vote in favor of the public interest by voting NO on SB 164.
