Kill More Billboards!
The 1987 charter amendment placed on the ballot, and overwhelmingly passed by voters in Jacksonville that phases out billboards in Jacksonville is threatened by a billboard industry sponsored bill--2013-493.

This legislation is beginning to move fast through City Council committees on its way to the full Council for vote. It is very important to tell our City Council members to kill this bill.
The paid lobbyists and lawyers for Clear Channel and CBS Outdoor have had their say--they've been lobbying and working for over a year to get this bill passed.
Voice your opposition by visiting Scenic Advocates Jax. With just one click you can send a message to all 19 City Council members showing your opposition. Ask them to KILL the BILL.
