Sign Removal Bill Passes Senate Hurdle

SB 410, a MACo-supported bill to allow local governments authority to remove signs from highway rights-of-way, cleared a major hurdle in the Maryland Senate on Thursday morning.

After two days of delays, and extended discussion largely focusing on political signs, the Senate ultimately rejected a proposed amendment, and passed the bill on second reader. That means that the bill will be re-printed for a final Senate vote, before begin sent to the House of Delegates for its consideration. A similar bill has passed the House in past years, so MACo is hopeful that the bill’s chances for passage this year appear strong.
