We have a right to preserve our beautiful commonwealth and our way of life. When we allow others to degrade our surroundings we also degrade our sense of who we are, where we came from, and the values we hold in common.
The appearance of a place has a profound influence on behavior toward that place: ugliness breeds contempt; beauty promotes respect. Enjoy that scenic view because it - and our way of life - could be gone tomorrow. And once it's gone, it's lost forever.
Scenic Kentucky is concerned about possible action on House Bill BR 211, that is currently filed with the Kentucky Legislature.
It would allow an on-site LED sign to be converted to a LED billboard, which would allow the LED sign owner to sell advertising! Even the billboard industry is against this one!!
Please ask your legislator to oppose this bill.

The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure unanimously moved this past September to pass HR 5158, a bill to revive the National Scenic Byways Program, on to the full House of Representatives.
The bill would direct the Secretary of Transportation to reopen the National Scenic Byways Program to new nominations. The program has designated 150 special roads around the country as National Scenic Byways since its inception in 1991, but the last round of designations occurred in 2009, and Congress pulled support for the program in 2012 transportation legislation.
